August: Our month of FRUITFULNESS. (Double Portion)
TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT!
Scripture adds; “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulnessand truth” Isaiah 25:1. “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith” Ephesians 3:16-17.
To be “faithful” is to be reliable or trustworthy. For the Christians, this is faithfulness specifically to the Savior who redeemed us. Christian faithfulness therefore, is continued and consistent submission and obedience to the same Spirit who provides the ability for us to be faithful. This attitude is in direct contrast to our previous “faithfulness” to our own sinful desires and ways. The word also describes someone willing to suffer persecution and even death for Christ’s sake. “Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.” 2 Thessalonians 1:4.
Prayer: Oh God, the Holyspirit, help me to be faithful in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
