Gentleness & Faithfulness posted by John Sorensen on Aug 15, 2019
Have you checked off your Christian to do list today? Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, for Share Life Today. A recent Barna Research study says that most churchgoers equate spiritual maturity with following a list of rules. But that’s not what the Bible says! Instead, Jesus tells us to abide in Him to produce spiritual fruit. Spiritual maturity isn’t measured by checking all the boxes and being a polite Christian, it’s measured by the Fruit of the Spirit. And the Fruit of the Spirit is produced by the Lord working in us as we abide in Him! Lamentations 3 says that because of the Lord’s great love we’re not consumed – His mercy is new every morning, and great is His faithfulness! The Lord is so gentle with us and faithful to us. So, instead of focusing on what you think will make you look like a better Christian, focus on the power of the Holy Spirit, and spread the Gospel gently and faithfully to everyone you can.
