Faithfulness

“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.”

-Matthew 25:21

Faithfulness means to be loyal without wavering. It’s vital in your walk with God to grow this fruit because the Lord is a jealous God. He expects to be number one and refuses to share you with any other ‘gods’. The relationship of Christ and the church is a representation of marriage. We know we shouldn’t cheat on our spouses, so why would we think it’s okay to cheat on God? One day we serve Him and the next we serve our selfishness. We have to make a decision and be determined that we will live for God and not for everyone else. Read more

Peace

“And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.”

-Colossians 3:15 NLT

The world would be such a better place if we all lived at peace with one another. Could you imagine? It’d be like the movies where all the neighbors get along and know each other by name. People would share with others and love would spread. We’d have more friends than enemies and I believe the world itself would be a brighter place.

Unfortunately, the sad truth is our world is not currently in that state. Certain neighborhoods are cluttered with crime and hatred. I don’t understand what causes someone to murder a person. Now a days, there’s articles of parents killing their own child. If a person could do that to their own offspring, what would they be willing to do to a random human in their way?

Although we can’t change the entire world, we can start with the person in the mirror. The Bible teaches us to be the light of this world. Let’s learn how to become part of the solution. Read more

Welcome to the ‘Begin To Grow Your Spiritual Fruit’ Series!

“You will know them by their fruits.”

-Matthew 7:16

It’s clear that we should grow in the fruits of the Spirit. In this series, we will cover all the fruits and ways we can see growth in each area. I hope you enjoy it and thanks for joining us!

The Bible states that we can accurately evaluate if someone is a godly person by their actions. That doesn’t mean that godly people are perfect, but that they would have one or more of the following character traits:

Although it takes time, a believer in Christ should fully develop into all of these things. Typically, a believer in Christ should not be:

  • Hateful
  • Unhappy
  • Stressed
  • Impatient
  • Rude
  • Selfish
  • Harsh
  • Unreliable
  • Out of control

My goal is to help you to understand how you can grow out of these areas and into the fruits. I want to see the church of Christ get along and work with one another to save people. I want unsaved people to thirst for the living water from the well when they see our lives. That’s only going to happen if we change our actions (thereby changing our results). Read more
