Word of the Day, December 14, 2017

You are God alone. From before time began. You were on Your throne. Your are God alone and right now. In the good times and bad. You are on Your throne. You are God alone.

Galatians 5:19-25

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

The Bible mentions many specific actions and attitudes, Vices or Virtues that are either right or wrong. Ill ask you and me to review our own lives today.

Here are some examples of vices that I am sure that we all know about or even done some of them. These are neglecting GOD and others. Impurity, lust, hostility, quarreling, anger, sexual immorality, selfish ambition, dissension, arrogance, envy, murder, idolatry, drunkenness, wild parties, sorcery, cheating, adultery, homosexuality, greed, stealing and lying. Paul tells us that if this is our way of life, that we shall not inherit the kingdom of GOD.

The virtues become a by-product of living for GOD. Love GOD, Love People, Serve Others and Tell Everyone is a good start. Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, faith, meekness, temperance and goodness are all attributes of living for GOD.

The fruit of the Spirit is the spontaneous work of the Holy Spirit in us. The Holy Ghost produces these character traits that are found in the nature of Jesus Christ. We cant get them on our own but only with the help of the Spirit. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to grow in us we join our life with His. We must know Him, remember Him, imitate Him and to love Him.

I believe a desire to live in the spirit and to walk in the Spirit is the right path to growing closer to GOD. The by-product of Godly virtues is that we can serve the kingdom with a loving heart. A question for all of us to ask of ourselves. Are we being influenced by vices or virtues in our lives?

More of You, Less of me. Make me who I'm meant to be. You're all I want all I need. You're everything. Take it all I surrender. Be my king. God I choose, more of You, less of me.
