The Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5 22-23

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:22-23

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.

The fruit of the Spirit naturally develops in you as you leave sin behind and seek and become more like Christ. As your maturity in Christ grows so too will these virtues. It won’t be overnight, it takes a lifetime of dedication and obedience to God and His Word as you are led by the Holy Spirit. Fruit grows where roots are deep. Be rooted in Christ and let Him be the foundation of your life and you will see more abundantly good fruit to the praise and glory of God.

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:10

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

 

As followers of Christ we should show sincere brotherly love to one another. Let’s encourage each other by giving honor where honor is due.  Everyone needs to feel appreciated and we all know someone who deserves a little credit for everything they do.  There are many ways to honor someone who truly deserves recognition. It can be as simple as saying thank you, your kindness has not gone unnoticed or it can be something extravagant. The point is to recognize and encourage them.

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 11:25

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

Do It with Love

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:20

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

 

As godly women who love the Lord we should aspire to help the poor and needy.  That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things.  Sometimes, it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture.  Each of you should do what God puts in your heart to do and do it with love.

Everlasting Love

Jeremiah 31 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 31:3

The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

 

God assures His people that His love was established since the beginning of time. It is not a temporary love but one that continues from generation to generation. It is confirmed daily as He forgives, protects, provides, heals and demonstrates His continued grace, mercy and power in your life.  God’s magnificent love is sovereign, unchangeable everlasting and nothing can separate us from His love for us.

God Works Through You

Matthew 25 35.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 25:35

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.

 

By showing compassion and kindness to those in need you’re sharing God’s love and mercy.  Let everything you do be done as if you are doing it for the Lord. Let God work through you to fill the needs of His people. Don’t wait for someone else to do what God has called you to do.
