On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …. Nine Ladies Dancing

The nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit can be found in Galatians 5:22-23 and are: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. They’re the attributes that any Christian influenced by the Holy Spirit will start to show.

Galatians 5:16-23

16 Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, 21 envy,[e] drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.
