Me, Jesus and CLARITY

How to connect with God.  Lessons I’ve learned. I once read in a book that said God speaks to you loud and clear. All we have to do is listen, feel, smell, touch,  to know God’s presence in your life.  Usually if your pondering something and your jawbone or temples hurt, it’s a nay!  But……if… Continue reading Me, Jesus and CLARITY

Invitation to the Lord’s Salvation

Invitation to the Lord’s Salvation The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit.… Continue reading Invitation to the Lord’s Salvation

1 Samuel 16:7 (GW)

Is a believer supposed to be able to feel the Holy Spirit?

We are not filled with the Spirit because we feel we are, but because this is the privilege and possession of the Christian. Being filled or controlled by the Spirit is the result of walking in obedience to the Lord. This is a gift of grace and not an emotional feeling. Emotions can and will… Continue reading Is a believer supposed to be able to feel the Holy Spirit?

Are You Standing By Your Core?

Cultivating Spiritual Fruit

 

Galatians 5:22-23 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.                    

                                              fruite of the spirit

The fruit of the Holy Spirit refers to the nature of the Spirit revealed in the life of the believer. The fruit of the Holy Spirit is for character.  Spiritual fruit is evidence of spiritual maturity. Like fruit in the natural world, it is a product which is the result of the process of life. Spiritual fruit is Christian character in both personal and social conduct and is a product of the Holy Spirit at work in your life and your response to this work. Just as fruit takes time to develop in the natural world, spiritual fruit takes time to develop. It is the product of natural growth in the life of the Spirit.

LOVE~ Good will, brotherly charity, out of love for God and according to his will, unconditional holy affection. JOY~ cheerfulness, calm delight, gladness, greatly be exceeding. PEACE~ absence of conflict, quietness, tranquil state of a redeemed, believing, obeying soul. LONG-SUFFERING~ patience, in faith.  GENTLENESS~ softness of temper, mildness, benign spirit, kindness. GOODNESS~ uprightness of heart & life, virtue. FAITH~ belief, with the predominate idea of trust or confidence in God or in Christ.  MEEKNESS– softness of temper, a fruit of confidence in God and a form of temperance.  TEMPERANCE~ spirit governed self-control, fruit of character by dying to self in yielding to the Spirit in obeying His Word.
