Finally... Freedom.


Only a made-up mind can truly be free. What have you made up your mind to be?


Be In the World, But Not of It

It can be frustrating for me when we (me included), the children of God, take the gifts, the tools, the precious commodities of Heaven for granted.

The Fruit of the Spirit is no a cliché'.

It's not some warm and fuzzy anecdote or children's song on how to be nice.

Collectively and individually they serve as an arc of safety, the space where we are compelled by God to grow and live more complete in Him. Fruit of the Spirit is where we harvest the character of Christ planted in us by the power of the Holy Spirit and share it with the world.

JOY

PEACE

PATIENCE

KINDNESS

GOODNESS

GENTLENESS

FAITHFULNESS

SELF-CONTROL

LOVE

Want to know how to be in this world but not of this world? This is how.

The Fruit of the Spirit is where God's supernatural character reveals its power through you.

It's Jesus with the lepers.

Christ at the well with the woman.

Peter being chastised, then redeemed.

Virtue leaking from the hem of a garment.

What's leaking out of you?

What Do We Get When We Get You?

The world can (and does) all kinds of things to you, but did you know you are FREE to RESPOND AS YOU CHOOSE?

God gives you the free will

to react,

to make good decisions,

to make bad decisions,

to retaliate,

to reconcile.

We all get something when we get you.

Do your reactions,

your emotional responses,

your conversations

look like Christ, or something else?

The Fruit is your freedom to be, without apology, the best of you.

The Ultimate Self-Care

The Fruit is where we get the best of you, but remember it is also an arc of safety for you.

Heaven does not intend for your Fruit to only feed others, but to feed, nourish and revive you as well.

Have you been good to you lately?

Are you being kind to yourself?

Are you intentional about protecting your peace?

Are you faithful to the promise of God on your life?

Are you patient with yourself when you're not perfect?

Have you controlled the negative thoughts?

When's the last time you let yourself be loved?

All these things and more are possible for us when we abide in Christ's character. Let Him take care of you as you take care of your world.

We need you,

the best part of you,

the GOD 'n You, in this barren land.

Don't ever downsize the value of the Fruit.
