Paul said in Galatians 5:1” It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”The purpose of the Fruit of the Spirit is set us free from sin by telling us how to avoid sinning. We grow and mature as Children of God by bearing the Fruit of the Spirit.
Man can read the written word with man’s wisdom or with God’s spiritual wisdom. The outcome can be quiet different! The interpretations and how we see things is like night and day. Don’t get trapped in legalism! Man’s doctrine puts laws and commandments upon the Lord’s Children which should not be there. Legalism robs the freedom that Christ has given us.
Pray and ask for the Lord’s spiritual wisdom to help you see the truth. Don’t listen to man but listen to what the Holy Spirit puts upon your heart. Jesus Made Love Mandatory so when reading the written word it comes alive in the heart of those filled with love. Jesus told us to walk in the Spirit of righteousness and that means having total trust and faith in him. Let the fruit of the spirit pour out and be the light for the Lord. If one is trapped in legalism you can not see the light in them. They are D.U.C.K.S. under the Bed. They may be “Devoted Unconditional the Christ’s Kingdom and Service” and know the written word like the back of their hand but something is missing and that is the Light!!!
When we walk in the spirit, the “FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT”
shines forth to other people,
like a lighthouse shines forth it’s light.
“Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or PUTS IT UNDER A BED; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. “For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.
~Calling All D.U.C.K.S. To Come Out From Under The Bed~
The acronym D.U.C.K.S. stands for
“Devoted Unconditionally to Christ’s Kingdom and Service”.
“In essentials UNITY; in opinion LIBERTY; in all things LOVE”
God of all nations, We humbly ask you to guide us in all that we do. Strengthen us to love one another,
to help each other along in our faith journey.
Forgive us of our harsh thoughts, words,
and actions against people of other denominations in Christ. Help us to forgive one another, and join together, so that we may do YOUR work and glorify YOU LORD in the best way possible.
In Jesus name we pray,
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed!” John 8:36
