When a person comes to faith in Jesus, though at the time he might not realize it, the Holy Spirit of God comes into his life and takes up residence. From that point on, God wants that Christian to walk in the Spirit and bear fruit through his life. Part of that fruit is goodness, which is the fruit of the Spirit we are going to discuss today. We must first be good before we can start doing good. And in order to be good, we must realize that goodness can only come from the Lord, not from anything we’ve done. Once we acknowledge this truth, we can begin showing goodness to the people around us.
