- Galatians 5:13-26 New International Version (NIV)
- Life by the Spirit
- 13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
LIVE IN PEACE ~
Peace of mind is everything to me. When life gets a little crazy and things just happen, I turn to God in all situations of life. I have seen miracles and I have seen healing in the process of time. I have changed my mind over troubled to peace. Life is short and we must live it fully. Suddenly things happen and we are left with wonder. Yet, while on earth, we can live by joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control. Yes, we can live all the things the Bible tells us to do it. It is much better to live in peace than a troubled mind. After all, somethings we just can't do anything about but choose peace through it.
INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD ~
Living according to the Bible, gives us an inheritance.
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Living SacrificeTherefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Each of us have a choice in the way we live and believe. I choose to pray for the readers of my blog daily, your family and friends. I know that prayer works and my attitude of praise is needed too. I love that God has given me another day of life and I hope you do too. Do your best and enjoy this day!
