Juicy fruits

Forsyth County News
Nine fruits are produced for us by the Holy Spirit which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
This happens when the holy spirit controls our lives. See Galatians 5:22.

When we live as a nation, with the nine fruits, given to us by the Holy Spirit controlling our lives, we would be an exceptional great nation living the way God intended for all us, whether we are rich, poor, white, black or etc.

We would not recognize this great country of ours if each one of us lived with these nine fruits. Imagine a nation with nothing but love, joy, peace and the other fruits. What a blessing it would be from our father, Lord and savior.

All of us should remember 9-11, it was terrible, and the weeks that followed everyone was scared and the people really poured into the Lord’s houses to worship. The attendance in church’s was the best in years, but so many people are back to their old ways and have quit hearing the word of the Lord and everything is back to “normal:” greed, doping, killing, loving ones self and not giving any thought where they will be spending eternity. Do you know?

I suppose we can dream it will get better but the only way is prayer. I pray that all of us will pray for God to control our lives, and that his will be done and our nation healed. God bless and God loves all of us.
