Spiritual Gifts vs. Fruit of the Holy Spirit

Spiritual Gifts vs. Fruit of the Spirit


"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23

Have to do with service to Believers vs. Have to do with character by Believers

Are the means to an end vs. Is the end


What a Believer has vs. What a Believer is


Given from without by Holy Spirit vs. Produced from within by Holy Spirit


Plural reference (use some of them) vs. Singular reference (need all of them)


All gifts not possessed by every Believer vs. All fruit should be in every Believer

Will cease when the perfect comes vs. Permanent

Does not indicate godliness of life vs. Does indicate godliness of life
