This concludes the Three Little Words book I've been sharing on this web journal.....

So, what comes next?

To finish out the year I'm using the Fruit of the Spirit passage from Galatians 5:22-23:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control;

When this passage first came to my attention years ago I saw it as a list of ways to be what I wanted to be.  Then one day I realized there was no "s" on the word "fruit."  The fruit of the Spirit was a package deal.  Thus began my journey to understand how does one become loving, joyful, peaceful, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled?  The answer is, YOU don't!  It is the SPIRIT in you who is all these things.  That is why it's a package deal.  When we accept Christ into our very being, it is He Who is now living in us.  It is only through our self-will that we either quench the Spirit or let Him reign.

Each quality that the Spirit manifests through us will be highlighted for two weeks.  I'll use scripture and in whatever way the Spirit inspires me.  The other change is it will be posted the night before so that you'll receive the e-mail notification the next morning so that you can start your day meditating on these traits of the Spirit in you.

I hope you will join me as I make new discoveries in God's word.
