Pastor Paul's Thoughts


A CHRIST-LIKE CHARACTER

"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. "
.....Galatians 5:19-24


Greetings In the Name of Jesus. The study of Galatians 5 is eyeopening!! A true guideline for our daily lives. It is my prayer that as you read this little sermonette, that you truly understand what God expects of you and that you strive for a Christ-like character!

TRAITS OF A CHRIST-LIKE CHARACTER


TRAITS OF A CHRIST-LIKE CHARACTER ARE LOVE, PATIENCE, FAITH, ENDURANCE, HUMILITY, SACRIFICE, OBEDIENCE--TRUST. THIS TYPE OF CHARACTER WILL PRODUCE LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS,AND GENTLENESS. IT'S BY OUR FRUIT THAT WE ARE JUDGED.

Galatians 5:19-24 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

GOD WILL TEST AND TRY US TO HELP US AND PROVE US THAT WE CAN DEVELOP A CHARACTER OF CHRIST. IT IS A CONTINUOUS PROCESS AND ONLY PROVES GOD LOVES US AS CHILDREN AND WANTS US TO CONTINUALLY DEVELOP OUR LIVES TO BE MORE LIKE HIM. SHOWING JESUS TO EVERYONE GOD BRINGS INTO OUR LIVES EACH DAY. WE MUST CONTINUALLY MAKE A SOBER SERIOUS EFFORT TO DEVELOP THE CHARACTER AND ATTITUDE OF CHRIST.
