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.

Letter 270 – DON’T SHUT DOWN

When we are born, it is forever. Beyond our first glimpse of earthly light, begins our journey through life…Throughout Eternity. Each person’s journey is different from anyone else’s. Like fingerprints. None are the same.

 

Even from the very beginning, we can’t control what happens to each of us; and afterward, all decisions are in our hands. We make choices as we grow up, and grow older…until we finally reach an age when our bodies start to break down. Just because we are old doesn’t mean we have to shut down. We have to stay actively alive and make choices, if they have not have already been made, that will affect our eternal life.

 

In fact, one of our choices we make determines where we will spend eternity. In the life we are living, we have one of two choices to make…1-Receive Jesus Christ as our Savior, and let Him guide us through life, or 2-Reject Jesus Christ as our Savior and go to Hell, where we will die each day forever.

 

DON’T SHUT DOWN

Letter 269 – Let God’s Love Enter

Have you ever gone through a dry spell when your relationship and awareness of The Lord was diminished and caused you to lose touch and you don’t feel a closeness to Him? It can and does happen and we may not understand why.

There are a multitude of reasons why we venture into the world of doubt and confusion. When a family member or a close friend is going through difficult times, we try to shoulder their burdens as if they were our own and we try to solve other’s problems ourselves. Or, a disaster strikes us and we wonder where the Lord is. It’s about believing. We have to believe and have faith in Him in order for Him to Help us.

At times like these, we forget to realize there is a solution to get us through our difficulties. That is God, Who is there to help us face these difficult trials.

We can be free if we turn our life over to Him, and realize that He wants to take care of us. Nothing can separate us from the Love of God.

For those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.

Letter 266 – Love Never Fails

I’d like to share with you a previous letter. I think it is very appropriate at this time.

 

TRUE LOVE is our goal; however, there are times when we don’t exhibit these qualities.

 

Even though we fall short, we have to be overcomers and remember that…

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy;

Love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

Does not behave rudely, does not seek its own,

Is not provoked, thinks no evil;

Does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth;

Bears all things, believes all things,

Hopes all things, endures all things.

LOVE NEVER FAILS

Letter 266 – Love Never Fails

Letter 246 – DO WE KNOW THE COMING AGES?

What is beyond?…I have covered this in the past, however, it is so important, that it should be covered again. People tend to forget the coming ages beyond this world. It is our eternal life.

 

We Christians have an appointment with The Lord which will last forever. There are several events that will happen as we meet and be with the Lord.

 

First, we live our life on earth for many years…Some will live longer than others. In any case, those Christians who die, their spiritual body will go to Heaven and their physical body will be buried here on earth until the rapture, at which time their Glorified Body will arise and be joined with their spiritual body. Those who are alive at the Rapture will follow immediately afterward without experiencing physical death.

 

Following the Rapture will be seven years of Tribulation during which time we will be with the Lord. After the Tribulation will come the Millennium when the Lord will descend from Heaven to earth to rule and reign for a thousand years. Beyond this will be the New Earth where God will bring heaven to earth to live in our presence forever.

 

We are to be co-heirs of Christ and to rule and reign with Him forever. Our minds can’t imagine His treasures that He has for us.

 

DO WE KNOW THE COMING AGES?

Letter 246 – DO WE KNOW THE COMING AGES?

Letter 245 – Do We Know Jesus’ Love?

Breakthrough… If we are barren and waiting for help, Jesus’ Help is already there…if we will accept it. When we try to help ourselves first before Jesus helps us, He cannot address our needs, unless we allow Him to help. Open the door and let Jesus enter our lives. “I am the way”…says the Lord…

 

Once we let Christ into our lives, we can begin rejoicing because we have Christ’ availability of provisions of healing, soundness of mind, health and safety, and as long as we stay in tune with Christ, He will give us “peace”…that is beyond all understanding.

 

It sounds very simple; however, it is very difficult to get it into our heads that Jesus loves us more than anything we can imagine, and that He created us to be a Loving Family. Of all of creation, we are His most cherished possession.

 

DO WE KNOW JESUS’S LOVE?
