Your Time to Live is Now

Your time to live for God is now. 

Whether you are 15 years old, 55 years old, or 95 years old, God is beckoning you to live your life in a way which brings Him glory and advances His kingdom.  If you are living any other way, you are not truly living. 

God tells us that “the mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.”  If you try to live your life according to the will of your mind, you will not be able to fulfill the will of God for your life.  The only way to fulfill God’s will is by living according to His virtues. 

The virtues of God are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. 

If you have received Jesus, each of these virtues resides inside you and are available to you no matter how Godless you feel or how sinful you have become.

Avail yourself to the Holy Spirit and begin seeking Him and embracing His attributes.  Memorize the passage of scripture which lists the fruits of the Spirit.  Meditate on it by allowing each fruit of the Spirit to resonate in your mind until it begins to change your heart.  As you allow these virtues to be planted into your mind and heart, call on them whenever you are in a position where they ought to be used.  Choose to imitate God by responding to every situation and circumstance just as He would. 

In no other way will God be more satisfied in you and in no other way will you better carry out the will of God.

 


“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”

  Galatians 5:22,23
