Why just pick one….

When you can choose them all….

Galatians 5:22-23

  • Lays out for us the fruit of the Spirit. Every so often, we focus on one and how to execute that one effectively and/or consistently. However, we see that verse 22 points out the word [FRUIT] and not [FRUITS]. Which leads me to believe that all 9 (Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, meekness, temperance, goodness, and faith) form one fruit! Which is a great correlation to scriptures which speak of one spirit, one body, on faith, and one baptism. (Ephesians 4:4-6)

Challenge

  • I challenge you (along with myself) to demonstrate the Fruit of the Spirit through the power of the Holy Ghost!

Restricted, but Hope

In response to today’s one word prompt: finite. The word stuck out to me and all I could think about is the reality of limitations when it comes to our “flesh”. We are restricted to only what our bodies can do.

For example, during praise and worship, sometimes I stand and imagine praising God in a totally different style than what my body is portraying. No matter how much I move there is a way in which my spirit want’s to praise, that my body can not. However, I find joy in knowing that once we receive our glorified bodies (Philippians 3:21) I WILL be able to praise God truly the way my spirit desires – infinitely – without circumstances….
