Letter From an Old Geezer: November 24, 2018 – Taste the Fruits of the Spirit

Accepting Jesus into our lives blends our Spirit with His Spirit. From this union comes the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. As we begin our Christian walk, we need to live the integrity of the Spiritual Fruits.

The Fruit of Love is the most important fruit that we can taste. We are to love our fellow man as our selves. Without love, nothing else matters.

JoyHappiness, a great pleasure, delight.

PeaceCan only be drawn from the Lord.

LongsufferingLong, patient endurance of injuries, insults, trouble.

Kindness…Sympathetic, tenderhearted, generous.

Goodness…Honorable, respectable, morally sound.

Faithfulness…Unquestioning belief in God.

Gentleness…Courteous, calm, tranquil, quiet.

Self Control…Control our emotions, desires, actions.

 

The Fruits of the Spirit that we receive while here on earth is just a beginning of what we will encounter when we meet the Lord. With this in mind, reach forward for those things which are ahead.

Letter From an Old Geezer: November 24, 2018 – Taste the Fruits of the Spirit

Letter From an Old Geezer: November 10, 2018 – Slow down, simplify, and be kind.

This page, and the words on it, is intended to convey a short simple message for those who will hear. It is a message to help us stay focused on The Lord and to live our lives according to His Will.

 

His Will begins with one word…LOVE. This is the one ultimate word with the cohesiveness that blends our actions with God’s desires for us into a perfect covering, if we follow God’s Will.

 

It requires effort on our part and can sometimes be thwarted; as, there are times in our lives when we’re so caught up in the rush of the hour that we lose the tic tock moments of life. These tic-tock moments are the glue that gives life meaning.

 

This message is that Life’s meaning is not about us, but it is about others, our brothers and sisters. Don’t miss those opportunities to listen to others and let them know that we care. These are tic-tock moments.

 

Slow down, simplify, and be kind.

You can never do a kindness too soon,

For you never know how soon it will be too late.
