"Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness"

“Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness”

Blessings folk!

Are you allowing the Spirit to manifest Its fruit?

Gal 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Goodness means “uprightness of heart”, “kindness”, “good”.

Do you desire goodness?

The Lord provides…

2 Thess 1
11 To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power,
12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Goodness and the work of faith with power.
Brings glory to the Lord.
An act of grace.

This is not goodness of the flesh.
This is not goodness of man…the good things that man does.

This is an empowering of the Spirit.
A goodness beyond the flesh.
The Goodness of God.

Rom 15:14
And concerning you, my brethren, I myself also am convinced that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able also to admonish one another.

Be full of goodness.
