To know Him and to make Him known. Love…Joy…Peace…Patience…Kindness…Goodness…Faithfulness…Gentleness…Self-Control. These are all ways we can live a holy life. We do not need to pound on people with bible verses as if they are the law. God gave everyone free will, each person will either turn towards God or turn away from God by how they choose to live. The attitude and behaviors they exhibit in everyday life. I usually try to pick one of the nine fruits of the Spirit and make myself more aware of how am I practicing patience or how am I showing faithfulness and one of the hard ones for me…how am I doing with self-control. The more we spend time with Jesus and the Word of God the better we get at holy living and the more prepared we become to share the Good News. May you find joy and comfort in your faith.
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people holy and dearly loved, cloth yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
