The Flesh vs The Spirit – part 3

In the last part of the mini series on “The Flesh vs The Spirit” we learned that the Holy Spirit wants to bring spiritual fruit in a believer’s life. He comes and makes His home with you and desires to fellowship with you. Paul lists 9 different characteristics that the Holy Spirit will bring about in a born again Christian’s life. We find that the first fruit on the list is “love” which is essential for all believers to understand before attempting to pray about having the other fruits come forth in their walk with the Lord. If we have no understanding of the love of God, how will we get to know the other 8 fruits listed in Galatians 5:22-23?

In Christ: Forgiving One Another – part 4

As Christians in the church spend more time with one another, we’ll inevitably rub each other the wrong way. At times, this can be due to the healing process that each Christian is going through, and also as each person goes through their own growing pains. Before we were Christians, we would treat each other badly. But now as we follow Christ, we should examine each complaint against another, and utilize it as an opportunity to grow in God’s grace and to forgive, even as Christ forgave us. These choices will either lead us to Christian growth and maturity with healthy relationships, or to backsliding and bitterness as we destroy our relationships with God and each other. We must put off the old ways, and force ourselves to put on Christlikeness!
