Pastors Message

Pastors are away so I am filling in with some scriptures to ponder over this week from Kenneth Copeland Ministries through the You Version Bible App. I hope they are as valuable to you as they are to me.

“Galatians 5:22-23 lists nine separate fruit of the spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. According to the authors of this particular study, most are easy to define. But the fruit of kindness and the fruit of goodness are so similar, it can be difficult to differentiate between the two. The Bible lists them separately throughout the Scriptures and uses the two terms differently, so it’s important to take the time to discover their true meaning. 

Most Bible scholars agree that the two are interdependent. Through study,  it seems clear that goodness is God’s foundation imparted to us in the form of kindness. Kindness then becomes our responsibility to share with the world. The Bible describes goodness as a state of being. It says that God is Good. Goodness isn’t just something He has, it’s who He is. Since we’re re-created in His image, goodness is who we are, too. (We just have to develop the fruit and act on it!)”

Remember this when you’re running short on kindness, “God is Good! Run to Jesus!” Always bear good fruit by remembering to extend “good will to all!”

Thanks be to God as He’s still got this!
