The Last Fruit of the Spirit- Temperance

May 24, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Galatians 5:22&23

Temperance is Emotional Restraint or Self-Control. Do we ever get angry and loose self-control? We have a temper and it shows.

How do we conquer bad temper? Give it all to Jesus. He wants us to be in control over our emotions.

Is it sinful to be angry? Not necessarily. What is sinful is how we control that anger. If we find ourselves getting angry, it is better to walk away than to shout, yell or worse.

The old saying I’d count to ten before you react. Good advice. Today let us decide to control our temper and give it to the Lord.

Fruit of the Spirit-Goodness

May 21, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22

There is a saying that we hear quite often, “God is good all the time.” That is so true. Can others say that about you or me.

We tell our children, be good. We want them to behave, obey and choose to do the right thing.

How much more should we as Christians do good in our lives. All the time. We want the Lord to be pleased with us, as our children want us to be pleased with them.

Do good.

Fruit of the Spirit-Longsuffering

May 19, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22

The term for long suffering is : having or showing patience in spite of troubles, especially those caused by other people.

This is a perfect description. Are we patient with people even when they cause us trouble, hurt us or unkind?

The Fruit of the Spirit- Peace

May 18, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22

God gives us many fruits of the Spirit when we are saved. One of the great blessings is peace.

We do not need to be worried or afraid. God promises peace. We need to demonstrate that peace to others. We should live a peaceful life at home, in the workplace and wherever we are.

We are calm and quiet in all circumstances, not adding stress in any situation. If this is not your personality ask the Lord to help you obtain peace.

Fruit of the Spirit, Love

May 16, 2022

This week we will look at the Fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5.

The first fruit is love. Every born again believer should have all of the fruits. We have the Holy Spirit living in us when we accept Jesus as our Savior.

Jesus tells us in the Bible to love the Lord first and our neighbor as ourselves. How are you doing with this first fruit?

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Matthew 22:37-39

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12

You Don’t Have To Go To Church

May 15, 2022

Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

You don’t have to go to church, it is a privilege to go to church to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus.

Remember 2020 when we could not go? In some countries people still cannot go to church and worship freely. We are so blessed in America to be able to go to the church of our choice and worship wherever and whenever we want.

Are you not going because it is more comfortable to stay home? If you can get out, you are not sick, not taking care of someone who is ill or you are working, then you should go to church.

What Are You Looking For?

May 14, 2022

Many people today are worried about where they will live, their job and many other things that are beyond their control.

God has many promises in His Word. This verse is one of them. If you are constantly worried about things, it is a lack of trust in God.

Seek Him first and He promises that you will always have your needs met. Not necessarily your wants.

If you have had a problem with worrying, ask God to forgive you and ask Him to help you trust fully in Him to meet your needs.

Children Are A Blessing From God!

May 5, 2022

Mother, you have the greatest blessing from God, next to your salvation, in your children. Today, even if they have disappointed you or seem to be a burden, remember that God gave them to you to bring them up to serve Him.

Sometimes it is hard and feels like an impossible job, but God is with you to give you wisdom, grace and love for them.

So today, give them your time, kind words and a special hug. You have the greatest gift in them.

Mothers, The Greatest Job In The World

May 4, 2022

A mother has the most influence on a child’s life. What she says and does teaches her children on how they should speak and act.

As Christian moms we should teach our children the Word of God from the beginning of their lives. We start by singing songs about Jesus. Read them stories from the Bible. Most of all pray with them and for them.

Our words are so important!! Speak softly and kindly. Listen to them. Be careful to encourage and not set a bad example by harsh or unkind words.

Being a mother is the most important job in the world. We never know what our children will become. We may be training that child to be great for God. A little girl who could influence a country like Esther, or a little boy a great leader like Moses.

Honoring Moms!

May 3, 2022

There is nothing so precious as a photo of a Mother with her child.

Mother’s Day is coming on Sunday in the USA, But it is a good thing to honor your Mother wherever you live, not just on a special day but everyday.

Ephesians 6:2&3
Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
