Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 15 March 2019

Spiritual Fruit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law
 (Galatians 5:22-23).
Today’s Morsel:  I wish this world would make up its mind.  One time you read an article and it says fruit is good for you.  Then you read another article, and it says you shouldn’t eat certain kinds of fruit.  What are we to believe?  I think someone is telling us some lies, and I guess that’s why Satan is called the deceiver of the brethren.  Scripture says, And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:11-12). If God says that it’s good, then how can it be bad?  If natural fruit is good for us, think about how much better spiritual fruit is for us.  The fruit of the Spirit, which the Holy Spirit produces does not flow from a natural tree. It flows from a spiritual tree. The tree of life.  Jesus Christ.  There should be no shortage if this fruit in your lives.

Sing: To be like Jesus. To be like Jesus. On earth I long to be like Him. All through life’s journey, from earth to glory. I only ask to be like Him.

Thought For Today: “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord” (Ephesians 5:9-10)
