Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5:16-22 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the desire of the flesh is against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, to keep you from doing whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.  Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: sexual immorality, impurity, indecent behavior, idolatry, witchcraft, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things [...]

Knowing God

Our eternal destiny will not be determined by our church attendance, good works, or religious devotion. Instead, there will be a simple question that must be answered - do we know God? “Knowing God” is the single most important decision of our lives. We all have an innate knowledge of the existence of God. However, knowing about God is not the same as having a relationship with Him.  In fact, Jesus teaches that just because we recognize who God is, we may not be saved: Matthew 7: 21-23“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of [...]

Mind of Dependence

Proverbs 23:7 - For as he thinks within himself, so he is. “So he is” - This spiritual truth can feel both liberating and quite convicting. Our minds are where we can be totally ourselves. In our minds we can be thankful, offer praise and pray to our Heavenly Father. We can think about the goodness of God and how we want to serve Him and others. The mind can be a treasure chest of all that is good, holy, and righteous in our lives. The mind can also be a place where the worst in us lives. All sorts [...]

Soul of Obedience

A great irony of the Christian faith involves obedience. Many reject our faith because they don’t want to give up certain “freedoms” in their lives. Ironically, these same “freedoms” actually lead to bondage - addictions, idols, opinions of others, endless pursuit of pleasure etc... Alternatively, a life of faithful obedience to God’s commandments leads us to true freedom. 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdens Everyone wants a savior, not everyone wants a “Lord.” A saving faith requires that we willingly submit to God’s authority in [...]

Heart of Gratitude

Gratitude is more than just a feeling of blessedness; it is our spiritual condition that comes from the full awareness of our status as God’s adopted sons and daughters. Developing a heart of gratitude is one of the keys to a healthy Christian life. Gratefully, we are able to understand who God is.  He is our Abba Father, who loves us and desires to walk with us in intimate fellowship. He is our triune God, as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who gives us abundant life and the promise of eternity with Him. Gratefully, we recognize what God has done [...]
