Invitation to the Lord’s Salvation The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth.

ROMANS 5:8-10

     God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.        Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.      For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through… Continue reading ROMANS 5:8-10

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?

Living In Your Spiritual Lightness

Good Morning!  As the sun rises this morning, it is easy to see why light is a blessing — it is essential for sight and the growing of things.  Yet spiritual light is even more amazing because it produces goodness, righteousness, and truth. Wake up sleepy! Christ will give you light. EPHESIANS 5:14   His radiance will heal the areas of hurt hidden deep within you that prevent you from growing.  So rise from your sleep and be ready to live in the light today.  Let Our Savior illuminate your life, rekindle your goodness, help you to grow in righteousness, and light your way to the truth.

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.
