#530: Sermon Haiku #40: Galatians 5:22-24

Holy Spirit's fruit
Love: genuine affection
Agape ripened

Exuberant joy
Keeping the Father's commands
Fruit that never spoils

Shalom transcendant
Incomprehensible peace
Guarding minds and hearts

Willing to stand by
Holding tight to God's promise
Patient endurance

Kindly compassion
Heart's unfolding giftedness
Sweet-smelling flower

God's goodness prevails
Committed to holiness
Giving way to grace

Eyes focused on God
Pruned carefully, still faithful
Nourished by the Vine

Oh, gentle of heart
Never forcing my own way
How I long for this

The fruit comes from Him
By the Holy Spirit's power
God, not self, control.
