Ladies, the Bible talks about running a race in the Christian vernacular, so using that same language, we know we need a solid character to train for our race. The Holy Spirit has given us the tools to build that solid character called spiritual gifts, talents, and the fruit of the Spirit (NKJV).
Let’s use those resources, gifts, and tools to build ourselves up for a tough race and a strong finish!
Women in the military have a long and rich history! Sometimes we believe we have unique experiences that men typically do not have. As a Christian woman and Veteran, I would say a specific time is the time of menstruation and childbearing for many women. In the Bible, God created everything, including Adam and Eve, and he wonderfully fashioned them for each other. Therefore women have always had distinct roles to play in life from men.
We will cover more ground together as we continue the Spiritual gifts series. For this study, your Bible is your compass so let it be your guide. I am excited to share this information so we can learn and grow together!
So, ladies, do you consistently add fruits to your daily Christian diet? I am not talking about the occasional fresh fruit you get when you go out to eat, and I am indeed not chatting about can fruits. Most of us grew up hearing fruits should be an essential part of our daily diet for various reasons. I am here to say we should be consuming a different fruit as Christians. Let’s eat the fruit of the Holy Spirit,
which will enrich our spiritual diets in many ways. Enjoy the fruit of gentleness!
If there were an inequation for gentleness, it would look like this:
Gentleness ≠ Weakness rather Gentleness = Meekness
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – What is gentleness?
Galatians 5:22-23 says that the Holy Spirit works in us to be more like Christ (Ephesians 4:14-16), and part of the fruit, or results, of that work is gentleness. Gentleness, also translated “meekness,” does not mean weakness. Rather, it involves humility and thankfulness toward God, and polite, restrained behavior toward others. The opposites of gentleness are anger, a desire for revenge, and self-aggrandizement.
