Fruit of the Spirit is Love…

Galations 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

The actions of our nation in these last days as we have had an election is quite a contrast to what we see in these verses. There have been people burning our flag, promoting cursing and obscenities as free speech, exhibiting none biblical lifestyles etc.  And it is all in the name of having the ability to be free.

The truth is that we will never be free until we truly meet Jesus and come to His terms.  Those terms are stated very clearly here. Our lives are to bear the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. When these principles rule our lives the world is a very different place.

Violence, hatred, and war will never disappear until we once again become civil toward one another through the love of God. When we see these many different fruit of the Spirit of God ruling the lives of men and women, there is peace and longsuffering toward one another. As long as these truths are ignored there is always war and division. Continual strife!

My prayer is that we as a nation can once again honor the Lord's teaching on how we should treat one another so that we can leave behind the ugliness that seems to rule our current society.  There is no peace without the person of our God at the top.  We must return to our foundations in Him!

Keep Looking Up,
