Lesson Review – Galatians 5:1-6:1 – The Fruit of the Spirit


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Acts 10 – The Gentiles Are Converted.

This is lesson 52 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 130 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 52 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

When we believe the gospel and are born again, the Holy Spirit works in to produce godly fruit.

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

Paul wrote a letter to the church in Galatia telling them that obedience to the law doesn’t save them, rather faith in Jesus saves them. As believers, the Holy Spirit now empowers them to honor God in their actions (the fruit of the Spirit).

Questions for Discussion

What is the fruit of the Spirit?

The fruit of the Spirit is godly attitudes and behaviors the Holy Spirit works in us as believers.

Can you name the fruits of the Spirit?

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

Do we need to show the fruits of the Spirit for God to accept us?

No. God accepts us because Jesus lived a perfect life (full of the fruits of the Spirit) and died in our place for our sins. When we believe in Jesus, the Holy Spirit works in our lives and empowers us to have the fruits of the Spirit.

Is it possible to be perfect once we have the fruit of the Spirit in our lives?

No, we will make mistakes and sin until we go to heaven.

What fruit of the Spirit do you find the hardest to show?

Accept any answer and use it as a springboard for discussion.

Praying together

Take time to pray together and ask God to fill your lives with the fruit of the Spirit and that he would help you both to repent when you don’t display his fruit in your life.
