Quiet Time with Jesus – One Spirit

Friday, 19 May 2017

Someone asked, “What are your core values?” Very often, Galatians 5:22-23a would come to mind:

But the FRUIT of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering (patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

We teach these values to children in Sunday School. The children are encouraged to memorize these values. At the right time and the right place, the Holy Spirit will bring these values into remembrance… We are of One and the Same Spirit. Therefore, the FRUIT should be the same. Amen.


My Prayer

Dear Father God,

Apostle Paul emphasized that FREEDOM IN CHRIST means freedom to produce the fruits of righteousness through a Spirit-led lifestyle. 

Help us not to use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh but - THROUGH LOVE - serve one another. 

As we walk in the Spirit, we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh, and these are contrary to one another, so that we do not do the things that we wish. Your Word says that the works of the flesh are evident (Galatians 5:19-21) and those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

May the GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ be with our spirit.

Amen.
