The fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5:22-23 Amplified Bible (AMP) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.

In this the love of God was made manifest among us

As we step into a deeper abundance of relationship with our heavenly Father, our hearts will naturally burn to love people as he has loved us. Loving people was never a chore for Jesus. He loved those around him with the fiery passion of his Father, and God calls you and me to do the…

How to Know When God Is Speaking

One of the questions I get asked a lot is, “How do I know if something is from God?” Like, is this God? Or is that from God? Is that the Holy Spirit? Am I hearing things? Could this just be a bad case of gas, like I ate too much chili? When should I…

Learning from the Past

“These twenty years I have been in your house; I served you fourteen years for your two daughters, and six years for your flock, and you have changed my wages ten times. If the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had not been on my side, surely now…

Receive more grace by knowing your Identity in Christ

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17) When you learn to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and your Lord, you become then and there a new creation. You are reborn with a new spirit and are given the chance…

how to pray

Matthew 6:7-15 In Matthew 6:7, Jesus cautioned against meaningless repetition when talking to the Father. Just two verses later, He left a pattern to help us pray. However, in using this passage, which is known as the Lord’s Prayer, we’re often guilty of the very thing Jesus warned against: Instead of thoughtfully praying each line,…

PRAY FOR OTHERS

PRAY FOR OTHERS. Sometimes God gives us a burden to intercede for someone else. Although we may not be able to help, the Lord can. • TRUST IN GOD’S POWER. Jesus said that an earnest prayer of faith has the power to move a mountain (Mark 11:23). No task in harmony with God’s will is…

Making Prayer a Priority

ECCLESIASTES3:1-8 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build…

The Lord Almighty

Psalm 24:10 Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty— he is the King of glory. Jehovah of hosts, Lord of men and angels, Lord of the universe, Lord of the worlds, is the King of glory. All true glory is concentrated upon the true God, for all other glory is but a…

COMBAT IN THE HEAVENLIES Spiritual Warfare

We continue with spiritual warfare. It is very bad if you don’t know your enemy. We must know our strategies but also we need to know the strength of the enemy we fight with. You are a very weak army if you don’t know the strength of your enemy. As people called by the name…

Deep Sin & The Christian Soul

Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Gal. 5.19-21) As I recently finished a Church Bible…

CONFESSING YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS PLEASES GOD

Every time you confess, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ”, God the Father is pleased. When you confess that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, it reminds Him of what His Son has done for you to become righteous. Also, by making you righteous, God is showing Himself righteous to demonstrate…

Don’t Deal With Fear…Get Free From It!

Do you ever feel afraid? How about when you drive in heavy traffic, or hear news of a tornado headed for your neighborhood? Or how about when you hear the sound of emergency vehicle sirens when your teenager is out with friends? If you find yourself afraid, you can be free from that fear! Listen…

The Spirit-Filled Life (Part 1)

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit Introduction The Apostle Paul reminds us that the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power (1 Cor. 4:20), and that the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in (or “by” pointing to the means) the…

Did Obama know date of Mandela’s death was June 26, 2013?

Posted on December 12, 2013by Jean It’s reasonable to wonder how many Western leaders in South Africa for Mandela’s memorial today have been keeping their tears of grief in check since June Did Obama know date of Mandela’s death was June 26, 2013? President Barack Obama may have already known the real date of Nelson…

It Is Well with My Soul

  When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,          when sorrows like sea billows roll;          whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,          It is well, it is well with my soul.            Refrain:          It is well with my soul,          it is well, it is well with my…

YE THE BRANCHES

I Am The Vine, Ye Are the Branches–John 15:5 Christ had already said much of the branch; here He comes to the personal application: “Ye are the branches of whom I have been speaking. As I am the Vine, engaged to be and do all the branches need, so I now ask you, in the…

THE VINE

I am The Vine, Ye Are The Branches –John 15:5 In the previous verse Christ had just said: “Abide in me.” He had then announced the great unalterable law of all branch-life, on earth or in Heaven: “not of itself”; “except it abide.” In the opening words of the parable He had already spoken: “I…

EXCEPT YE ABIDE

As the Branch Cannot Bear Fruit of Itself, Except It Abide In the Vine; No More Can Ye, Except Ye Abide in Me–John 15:4 We know the meaning of the word except. It expresses some indispensable condition, some inevitable law. “The branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine. No more…

ABIDE

Abide in Me, and I in You–John 15:4 When a new graft is placed in a vine and it abides there, there is a twofold process that takes place. The first is in the wood. The graft shoots its little roots and fibers down into the stem, and the stem grows up into the graft,…

THE PRUNING KNIFE

Already Ye Are Clean Because of the Word I Have Spoken Unto You–John 15:3 What is the pruning knife of this heavenly Husbandman? It is often said to be affliction. By no means in the first place. How would it then fare with many who have long seasons free from adversity; or with some on…

THE CLEANSING

Every Branch That Beareth Fruit, He Cleanseth It, That It May Bear More Fruit– John 15:2 There are two remarkable things about the vine. There is not a plant of which the fruit has so much spirit in it, of which spirit can be so abundantly distilled as the vine. And there is not a…

MORE FRUIT

And Every Branch That Beareth Fruit, He Cleanseth, That it May Bear More Fruit–John 15:2 The thought of fruit is so prominent in the eye of Him who sees things as they are, fruit is so truly the one thing God has set His heart upon, that our Lord, after having said that the branch…

THE FRUIT

Every Branch in me That Beareth Not Fruit, He Taketh It Away–John 15:2 Fruit.–This is the next great word we have: the Vine, the Husbandman, the branch, the fruit. What has our Lord to say to us of fruit? Simply this–that fruit is the one thing the branch is for, and that if it bear…

THE BRANCH

Every Branch in me that Beareth Not Fruit, He taketh It away–John 15:2 Here we have one of the chief words of the parable–branch. A vine needs branches: without branches it can do nothing, can bear no fruit. As important as it is to know about the Vine, and the Husbandman, it is to realize…
