Blessings to you from God our Father and Jesus our Savior,
Galatians 5. 22-23 “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.”
We are fastly approaching the most festive time of the year. For almost the entire country – Thanksgiving and Christmas are joyful – peaceful and filled with love. Families get together – wonderful meals are planned and had – it is s good time. But there are those who are not at peace – not feeling the love – people who perhaps fee that they have been dealt a bad hand. These are the ones we need to pray for and seek out to share God’s wonderful love and forgiveness. Years ago, Sandy and I took a weekend seminar where there was a Baptist Pastor from Tennessee leaning the time. He made a statement that has stuck with me to this day: “It matters not what is going on in your life – problems – worries – uncertainties – pain – sorrow – the answer is Jesus Christ. My brothers and sisters, Jesus can give us the fruits of the spirit – if we ask. Once we ask – we are then charged with being the light of Jesus in a darkened world – to share the grace and mercies of God. This festive time of the year – let us seek to please The Lord and to Honor Him with every breath.

Paul said earlier in this passage “16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.”
Let us walk with The Spirit leading us – let us live knowing that The Spirit lives in us – let love as Jesus showed us how to love. May God’s bless you and keep you in His stead – all your days. In Christ’s Love, Pastor Frank
