Movies That Will Inspire You To Pursue The Fruits Of The Spirit
Written by Admin on August 10, 2022
Many of us have heard, or maybe have memorized, the fruits of the Spirit from the Bible verse Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV):
“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.”
Maybe you’ve looked for ways to start the discussion about these fruits in your home and are not sure where to start. Or you’ve always heard them but want to understand how to truly see them lived out. Here’s some good news: Pure Flix has an abundance of movies and shows that teach each fruit of the Spirit. We share a few of our favorites here!
Kindness is an eagerness to put others first; to be merciful, and sweet, and show compassion.
Joy is rooted in our soul’s peace and communion with Christ. We can have joy because we know the peace and love of Christ in our hearts.
Forbearance, or patience, is the restraint that keeps us from acting or speaking hastily in the face of provocation, annoyance, and suffering.
Self-control is the fruit of the Spirit that helps us resist temptation and avoid falling into sin. Self-control is the restraint that helps us do God’s will instead of focusing on our own worldly desires.
Goodness is described as holiness in action. It’s the doing of small, holy, and good acts and deeds that we choose every day.
In John 15:17, Jesus uses love as a command. Love is action-based, willing for the good of another and putting their needs before our own.
In terms of the fruit of the Spirit, gentleness is defined as showing humility and thankfulness towards God, as well as stewardship and compassion for others.
Faithfulness is the steadfastness in which we follow God and His will. When we’re faithful, we follow His commands and trust in Him completely.
Peace is knowing that the Lord of the universe is by your side regardless of the circumstances or situations you encounter and not being anxious about anything that comes your way.
