Devotion on Galatians 5:22
|“ ….may you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.” ( Philippians 1:11)
I LEARN BY YOUR EXAMPLE, LORD
When I feel unloved, You remind me that you sent Your Son to die for my sins.
When I am in despair, You remind me that I matter to You.
When I am in turmoil, You grant me peace.
When I am selfish, Your mercy shows me the errors of my ways.
When I entertain negative thoughts, You gently remind me I am a new creation in Christ.
When my faith wanders, You guide me in the right direction.
When my heart is hardened, Your heart softens mine.
When I lack self-control, You remind me You are my Anchor.
Lord, I thank you for the gifts of the Spirit. Through Your mercy and by Your example, You have shown me how to use them to bring honor and glory to Your name. And thank you, Father for the greatest gift of all—Your Son, Jesus Christ.
