The Summer Camp was a wonderful experience.. Because of it, we learned many things from God's Word. There were 7 sermons in all, each dealing with the beautiful and important topic of the Fruit of the Spirit.
We learned about love and that it gives unselfishly for the well-being of its objects. We learned about joy. This joy is real, founded and rooted upon God, the Giver, instead of only on the gifts of the Giver, and is oftentimes mingled with Godly sorrow.. Then, we learned about peace, which is the absence of sinful anxiety. We learned about patience, which is slow to anger and does not retaliate a wrong done against it, about kindess and goodness, which blend together to produce a kind, sweet, and gentle giving, and faithfulness, upon which others can rely and depend.

You may have something that resembles it, but be assured, if you have not of the Spirit, you will never have of His fruit.
