Your next question:
> The second is- What are the 9 fruits of the Spirit?

The fruit of the Spirit is stated in Galatians 5:22-23:  love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

Please note that the fruit of the Spirit is set in contrast to the "works of the flesh" (Gal. 5:19-21).  And, that the text says there is one "fruit" of the Spirit, which has multiple traits (love, joy, peace, etc.).  So really, according to Galatians 5:22, there is one "fruit of the Spirit," not "9 fruits of the Spirit.

If we will live by the truth which the Spirit has revealed - the gospel - we will produce its fruit in our life (Gal.
5:16-18, 24-26).

Thank you again for your Bible questions.
