Join us: Galatians 5:22-23

fruitbackground2How long has it been since you’ve had a checkup to assess your spiritual health?

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

Jesus spent his entire life as a perfect role model for a servant of God–humble, caring, kind, and compassionate; always putting others before himself through love, forgiveness, and servitude. Serving isn’t something that only draws us closer to others, it draws us nearer to God himself and the fruit of the Spirit that God desires us to produce and share.

JOIN US: September 7th, 2014, for an exciting kick-off to the church year.

MEMBERS AND KIDS: Please bring a can or two of fruit. We will be donating it to the food pantry.

Come to know the freedom of a life filled with peace, joy, gentleness, and other positive characteristics. By developing and maintaining an intimate relationship with the Spirit of God, you will be able to nurture and cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in your daily life.

The Bible refers to literal fruit—such as olives, grapes and figs—many times. More frequently the biblical Hebrew and Greek words translated “fruit” have a symbolic sense. All crops are considered “fruit of the earth.” Children are called the “fruit of the womb.” A man’s words are “the fruit of his mouth.”

In ancient and modern times, people have used “fruit” to mean results, products, outcomes, accomplishments and achievements. An employee must be productive to be worthy of his wage. He must work hard, work fast and work smart to get jobs done and done right. In Scripture, “fruit” has similar meanings.

When God’s Spirit is at work in a person, amazing things happen. The person’s whole life blossoms and bears beautiful fruit. Through the Spirit you can experience joy and peace in every circumstance, no matter how difficult or painful.
