day 25.

GENTLENESS IS THE FIFTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

as we continue.



Matthew
11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:29




In Matthew 11:29, Jesus links meekness with lowliness: "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle [meek, KJV] and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Ephesians 4:1-3 states:
I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness [meekness, KJV], with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.



Gentleness: The Mark of a Christian
Gentleness, so sadly lacking in this world,
should be evident in the life of a Christian.
What is gentleness, and how can it be a part of your life?
By Noel Hornor
I love those dear hearts and gentle people who live in my home town

. Because those dear hearts and gentle people will never, ever let you down."

The words of this song, written 47 years ago by Bob Hilliard,

Call to mind a time when the world was (at least in our collective memory)

A more neighborly place. Do you sometimes find yourself wishing for those times?

Do you yearn for a return to civility?



Taken from Good News magazine.




Gentle Jesus, meek and mild

Words: Charles Wesley
Metre: 7.7.7.7

Gentle Jesus, meek and mild,
Look upon a little child;
Pity my simplicity,
Suffer me to come to Thee.

Fain I would to Thee be brought,
Dearest God, forbid it not;
Give me, dearest God, a place
In the kingdom of Thy grace

Lamb of God, I look to Thee;
Thou shalt my Example be;
Thou art gentle, meek, and mild;
Thou wast once a little child.

Fain I would be as Thou art;
Give me Thine obedient heart;
Thou art pitiful and kind,
Let me have Thy loving mind.

Let me, above all, fulfill
God my heav’nly Father’s will;
Never His good Spirit grieve;
Only to His glory live.

Thou didst live to God alone;
Thou didst never seek Thin own;
Thou Thyself didst never please:
God was all Thy happiness.

Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb,
In Thy gracious hands I am;
Make me, Savior, what Thou art,
Live Thyself within my heart.

I shall then show forth Thy praise,
Serve Thee all my happy days;
Then the world shall always see
Christ, the holy Child, in me.






Let Us Pray Together



Gentle Jesus, meek and mild,
Look upon a little child;
Pity my simplicity,
Suffer me to come to Thee..




Lord be with all who need extra strength and guidance today

We Remember all who are sick among us and also

Those unknown to us Lord Be With Them

You Know every hair on our Head Lord

We Pray you reach out and touch as only You Can.. We Ask these Things In Your Holy Name Amen.

GOD Is With YOU All The Time.

DAY 26TH



Let’s take a look at ‘goodness’ which is the sixth in the list of the fruits of the Spirit.

The Greek word for ‘goodness’ in this verse is ‘agathosune,’ [ag-ath-soo'-nay;] from Strong’s Concordance G19; goodness, i.e. virtue or beneficence:--goodness."

Other definitions are: praiseworthy character, wholesome, pleasant, agreeable, upright and honorable.

Goodness describes a person possessing godlike qualities of virtue, uprightness and true character. Goodness is an action. It is God’s way of love in action. Goodness is to be expressed outwardly in acts of helping others.

God is Good


When I first went to Sunday School over 60 years ago

One of the first things we learnt about was GODS GOODNESS

I still remember singing.

GOD IS GOOD TO ME

GOD IS GOOD TO ME

HE HOLDS MY HAND

HE UNDERSTANDS

GOD IS GOOD TO ME.


This is still the same message for us today

IF we ask him In Prayer

I also Learned to be good to others as well.

Doug.


Charlotte Church The Lord's Prayer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dU_MceRv ... re=related

Let Us Pray.



As we try each, and every day

To walk the path in the correct way,

Your their to guide, to help, ,to care

Your love Shines through It"s Always their


.You Know Our struggles before we do

We do our best ,with our Faith In You

Although Our burdens, may be hard to bear

Your love Shines through It"s Always their


As we look forward to the days ahead

We take your words as our daily bread

To know ,you listen To Our Every Prayer

YOUR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS ALWAYS THEIR

day 27

Faith
Faith is a gift and also a manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit. The gift of faith is imparted from God through the Word, but the fruit of faith is produced by the Holy Spirit. The gift of faith can move mountains, but the fruit of faith is what is required for daily living. The fruit of faith enables us to walk and live by faith (Romans 5:2). Without this kind of faith, it is impossible to please God
(Hebrews 11:6).



This Great favorite Hymn Says It All.


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

By CECE WINANS with lyrics

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60o3UP4K ... re=related


For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto deliverance to every one that believes;
To the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 for therein is revealed a righteousness of God from faith unto faith:
As it is written, But the righteous shall live by faith.'
(Rom.1.16ff)

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer,

Believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
(Mark 11:24 NIV)
********************************************************************


I want to share with you today A prayer written

By 15 year old Beckie Brandt from Net Hugs.


Father
This is my prayer to you ,

In my heart there is grief,
There is pain unspeakable.

Father my tears can cry no more
Father when times I feel this
I just seek your face and the peace
Just overwhelms me.

I'm asking you on my knees for faith that I can't see
For your peace I will give you all
All especially me

Amen.

This is my prayer as well Beckie

And I know many will be able to identify

As I did.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

This is so beautiful...we cannot please God without faith..and I love the verses in Mark 11 that tells us to believe when we pray, as if we have already received it...God bless you, Doug..these are so helpful to begin the day with. I need to work on all the fruits of the Spirit, for it is so easy to become weak and allow the daily cares of life to draw my mind away from talking with God continually.
Always,
Denise

Day 28
- But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance:

Against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23






We must be in close intimate fellowship with God everyday, being obedient to the voice of the Holy Spirit and following His lead. When we sin it is so important to repent and get right back in fellowship with Him.

If we are filled with the Holy Spirit then we have the ability to walk in love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, faith, meekness and temperance. If the Holy Spirit is in us, then His fruit is there also. But we have to learn to put our flesh to death and walk in the Spirit. Ouch—this is where it hurts a bit—but how glorious the outcome when completed!

Spirit of the Living GOD.

Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.
Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.
Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me.
Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.

Good Morning All WELCOME.


For the past 7 or 8 days we have been talking about

The Fruits Of The Spirit.


*******************************************

For the next few days we will be Reading about ........ The Holy Spirit.


Qualities that a person has…(a force or thing does not)

1) The Holy Spirit has intellect. 1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

2) The Holy Spirit has knowledge. 1 Corinthians 2:11 even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

3) The Holy Spirit has emotions. Ephesians 4:30 And grieve (lupeo (pronounced loo-peh'-o)); to make sad or sorrowful, heavy of heart) not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

4) The Holy Spirit has his own will and he makes decisions. Acts 16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia (pronounced froog-ee'-ah) and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,

5) The Holy Spirit Loves. Romans 15:30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;

More about the Holy Spirit tomorrow.

While preparing these messages a thought came to mind.

I am sure I wrote something about the Holy Spirit..

I went to Net Hugs Search Facility and came up with this. Written in My 2007.




Refrain

I Want To Pray In The Spirit

And Sing With The Spirit,

And Strive To Be Like Jesus Everyday

To Be Lead By Gods Spirit

I Am So Loved by Gods Spirit

To Share His Message In Every Way



He Is My Savior,

He Is My Risen Lord

I Want His Will , Mine To Be Of One Accord

When I Was Discouraged And So Afraid

He took me and LIFTED Me So High

And Like An Eagle I Have Soared.

Refrain


He Gives Me Comfort

He Gives Me Inner Peace.

The Lord Gives Me Strength To Face All Trial

Without Him In My Life Every Day

Life For Me Would Not Be Worthwhile

I Continue To Watch And Pray.


Doug Holt May2007


There is a story to this if you check the link.

I wrote on Thursday added to it on Friday and Had Linda

Singing it to me by Yahoo on Saturday..[/b][/size][/color]

Lord Open Our hearts so we can find the right words to Pray .

Open Our ears Lord so we can hear what you have to say

Lord Open Our Eyes So We Can See the Right PathWay .

Continue to Strengthen Us Lord Today and Everyday.
