Psalm 133:1

“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!”

  • Every relationship, in which both parties seek God first, will be blessed by God. When you both have the same priority and goal of glorifying the Father, your joy will be found in seeking and attaining that goal. Our unity through Jesus Christ should overcome all disagreements and differences. The blood of the cross covers all who receive it. Far be it from us to hold onto another’s sin that God has forgiven. May God be glorified in our relationships.

Galatians 6:14

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” The cross is all we have, and the cross is all we need.

Galatians 6:9-10

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Who does “everyone” include? Does it not include people who have done you wrong, people who do not believe what you believe, people who ignore you, people of different race, religion, or social status, etc.? Regardless of the outcome, and regardless of the response, we must stand firm in faith while striving to be Christlike to everyone. Often it never crosses our mind because we are focused on ourselves. An outward focus will bring peace, while an inward focus will always bring worry. When is the last time you did something good to someone? Do you look for opportunities to do so? When is the last time you made up your mind that you were going bless someone? Will you choose to focus outwardly on others, or only on your personal needs and desires? Will you look for the opportunity today to do good to “everyone”, or will you make an excuse as to how

Galatians 6:7-8

“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” We are not responsible for other’s actions, however, without exception, we are all responsible for our own actions. Check the topics of your conversation, your words, your attitudes, your relationships, your thoughts, and your actions! Those who walk through life avoiding the “God” discussions, have decided they don’t have the time, or desire, to go to church, never pick up the Bible for guidance, and never look past self-satisfaction or personal comfort, there will be a great awakening one day. We will all give an account to God for how we lived our lives! We will not “get by” with anything, but our sins will either be answered for by Christ, or we will pay the price ourselves eternally. Justification will only come through Jesus Christ.  What is on your agenda today, and at the end of the day, what is your goal? Does your “daily grind” ever focus on God, or is

Galatians 5:22-25

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” A Christian possesses the Holy Spirit, and the fruit of the Spirit is evidence of the Holy Spirit in you. In Christ, we should possess each and every thing listed as the fruit of the Spirit. Jesus said that we will be recognized by our fruit. Before we think about how others recognize us, we should recognize for ourselves what fruit we are exhibiting! A lack of any fruit, represents a lack of submission to God, yet God’s desire is that we live our lives with this fruit overflowing from our heart. An imitation will always be discovered, but if we submit our whole heart to God, regardless of our situations, we will be known by our fruit. We should never be satisfied with partially developed fruit, but we should strive to be a light in this dark world, and share the reason for the hope that

Galatians 5:16

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” The more we fill ourselves with God and his righteousness, the less room there is for our fleshly desires and sinfulness! Our victory and peace are not obtained by efforts to keep sin out of our lives, rather it is assured if we invite and welcome the Holy Spirit in! May we submit all we are to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Our walk today determines our response to temptation tomorrow!

Galatians 5:14

“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”” As a Christian, there is no excuse for a lack of love for the people that are put in your path. If we love God with everything we have, and we love others as much as we love ourselves, obedience to God’s commands will happen! May we focus on love, and not the law, for obedience to the entire law will follow love, but love will not automatically follow the law! May our faith and our actions be based on our love for God, and the love He showed to us by sending His Son, Jesus Christ. Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
