*SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN*
*1.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.
*2.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Thy friend friendship suits me well,
Both young and will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.
*3.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee

Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds be black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.
*6.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?
OPENING PRAYER
Father, let your Holy Spirit dwell richly in me so that I can manifest His fruit.
MEMORY VERSE: “(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth)”. –Ephesians 5:9(NKJV)
BIBLE PASSAGE: GALATIANS 5:22-23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
INTRODUCTION
One of the reasons Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit is to help us learn how to be more godly (John 16:12-15). The Holy Spirit will convict us of our sin (John 16:8) and guide us in choosing well when faced with temptations, thus producing godly characteristics within us (Ephesians 3:16; John 16:13). This is what the Bible describes as the ‘fruit of the Spirit.
TEACHING REVIEW: GALATIANS 5:22-23
In the above passage, Apostle Paul, gives a list of the components of the Spirit which sums up the law. They are:
i. ……….v22
ii. ……… v23
LESSON OUTLINES
1. WHY “FRUIT?”
2. THE OPPOSITE OF BEARING FRUIT
WHY “FRUIT?”
A. The Bible uses a lot of agricultural metaphors because they were easily understood by the highly agricultural culture of the time.
B. The “fruit of the Spirit” refers to the “results” we should see in our lives after receiving the Holy Spirit and working on our hearts over time (Romans 8:9;12:1-2). Apostle Paul according to *Galatians 5:22-23*. gives us the component of the ‘fruit’ as:
i. Love,
ii. Joy,
iii. Peace,
iv. Long-suffering,
v. kindness,
vi. Goodness,
vii. Faithfulness,
viii. Gentleness,
ix. Self control.
C. The ‘fruit’ metaphor helps us see our faith as a tree with branches that may or may not produce fruit, depending on how well we take care of the tree itself. If we give the tree nourishment (God’s word) -1Peter 1:23;2:2, then it will grow bigger. If we clear away weeds and insects (sinful tendencies) -Ephesians 4:22-31; Colossians 3:8-10, then keep the tree healthy. If we consult the professional Gardener (God) -1Chronicles 16:11- then we will ensure we are on the right track.
CLASS ACTIVITY 1
Mention the components of the fruit of the Spirit
THE OPPOSITE OF BEARING FRUIT
A. If you are a Christian and you are not exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit, at best, you will experience stagnation-no growth (James 2:14-26). At worst, the result of “bad fruit” is death (Romans 6:20-23; Proverbs 14:12).
B. Notice that Galatians 5:22 starts with the word “but.” The Apostle Paul tells us that the opposite of these spiritual fruit. Let’s take a look at the verses just before the fruit list: “Now the work of the flesh are manifest, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred , variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: if the which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” -Galatians 5:19-21. This is a list of things that someone who does not have the Holy Spirit’s influence would have problems with.
CLASS ACTIVITY 2
Students should narrate their personal experience of how they have been able to exercise the fruit of the Spirit in them.
CONCLUSION
Our sinfulness produces rotted, poisoned fruit, which reflects our sinful nature and hurt us in the end. On the other hand, the Holy Spirit produces beautiful, nourishing fruit that reflects God’s nature and will ultimately benefit our lives.
CLOSING PRAYER
Heavenly Father, help me to profit with the fruit of the Spirit in me.
ASSIGNMENT
Mention five (5) things that could make a believer deny the manifestation of fruit of the spirit (2×5=10 Marks).
