Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians Chapter 5 Verses 19-24

When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures,  idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:  love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.  There is no law against these things!

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to His cross and crucified them there.   (NLT)

Dear Lord,  fill us with Your Holy Spirit so that we may live a life that is pleasing unto you.

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

Our Hope is in the Lord

Psalm 39 Verse 7

“And now O Lord, for what do I wait?   My hope is in You.”

Regardless of what is going on in this world, our hope is in the Lord.    There is financial instability in world markets-our hope is in the Lord.

News reporters are  murdered on live television-our hope is in the Lord.

Police officers murdered in cold blood-our hope is in the Lord.

Politicians are making “pacts” with our enemies-our hope is in the Lord.

Society says “what is right is wrong”  “what is wrong is right”-our hope is in the Lord.

Today do not despair or be discouraged because our hope is not in the things of this life-our HOPE is in the LORD!

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

Christianity is not for Wimps

Titus Chapter 1 Verses 5a-9

“ . . . appoint elders in every city as I directed you, namely, if any man is above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion.  For the overseer must be above reproach as God’s steward, not self-willed, not quick tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not found of sordid gain, but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self controlled, holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able to both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict.”     (NASB)

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary
