Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

A Person’s Actions Will Tell

Something to think about. What does our actions say about us? Are we increasing in the fruit of the spirit–love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. Are we led by the Holy Spirit?

I believe being a Spirit filled Christian takes time and daily feeding on God’s Word…Matthew 4:4…

I believe being able to walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16), is only possible on a relatively continual basis…after the Christian becomes fully clad in the “Whole Armor of God” that the Apostle Paul writes about in Ephesians 6:10-20…starting with “The sword of the Spirit”- the Word of God, the only offensive piece of the 6 pieces of God’s spiritual armor…(Ephesians 6:17b)
http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=eph6:10-20&version=NKJV;KJV

And once fully clad in God’s spiritual armor…it then requires a consistent faith and continual submission to God, as one does their absolute best to remain totally controlled by the Holy Spirit…Ephesians 5:18-20…

James tells us this, in…James 4:7-8… Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (NKJV)

It took me over 7 years to finally get to a point in my life, where I can honestly admit that Satan’s temptations don’t bring me down… I still have to contend with my own flesh, but continual confessions via…1 John 1:9… bring me right back into a righteous state in God’s eyes, and again walking in sweet fellowship with the Lord…

This is how I have personally found a life that is filled with God’s richest blessings !!

Blessings in Christ, bruce

Great points Bruce 🙂 Some are still stuck and don’t know how or want to surrender yet or don’t know any better. This blog is showing the crawl, walk, run aspect to the process 🙂 Until we deal with the stuff that is not fruit of the Spirit and choose Gods will, the trip around the mountain continues 🙂 Thank you for your excellent comments! God bless you 🙂 A Friend 😜
