NEW ENTRY TODAY IN ‘JOURNAL MUSINGS’, 9-7-13  ‘Cooperating With God’

God is working on our character all the time.  Do you sometimes feel stressed out in your dealings with others?  Maybe God is dealing with YOU in the areas of patience and forgiveness.  After all, LONGSUFFERING, MEEKNESS AND TEMPERANCE are part of the 9 characteristics of the FRUIT of the Spirit.  

But the fruit of the Spirit is:

  • love
  • joy
  • peace
  • longsuffering
  • gentleness 
  • goodness
  • faith
  • Meekness
  • temperance:

against such there is no law.  

And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

(Galatians 5:22-26)

  1. No limit to the amount of ‘God-ness’ we can live. ‘No law’ against doing good! Who can argue with good fruit??

    Alas, many do, and I too can be fruitless.

    • YES, every day brings its challenges! We have to remember that folks will know us by the fruit we present them! I just cut the ‘bad’ part off a beautiful tomato that went into my salad!

  2. Thanks for the encouraging post…. how easy it is for us to feel sorry for ourselves when we are facing difficulties, instead of stopping and realizing that He is maturing us and drawing us closer to Him during these times of life.

    May the Lord bless you!
