by Ernest Easley
With only two characteristics left to inspect regarding the Fruit for the Family.. join me for a few minutes in Galatians 5. The nine facets of the Fruit of the Spirit are all ours! Not some of them but all of them! The Fruit of the Spirit is not like the Gifts of the Spirit. When it comes to spiritual gifts ... we all have at least...
The Gentleness of God
by George H. Morrison
What exactly may be meant by greatness is a question that we need not linger to discuss. It is enough that the writer of this verse was conscious that he had been lifted to that eminence. That he had been in very sore distress is clear from the earlier verses of this chapter. His heart had fainted-his efforts had been vain-his hopes had flickered and sunk into their ashes. And then...
Strength In Gentleness
by Fred Lowery
We don't have to be preoccupied with protecting our rights or trying to control because our Lord enables us to inherit the earth or literally to inherit whatever we need. God has promised to provide. The greedy grab and loose. The gentle inherit and gain. Really there are only two classes on this earth. The greedy, those who are trying to grab everything they can get and eventually they loose.

God's Tender Leading
by Daniel Rodgers
By the time we come to Exodus, chapter 13, God has delivered His people from the wicked Pharaoh of Egypt. They are now on their way to the Promised Land. The closest route to the Promised Land would have been to take the direct route along the Mediterranean coast. This would have been a journey of only a few weeks. However, God also knew that the shorter route...

by Stan Coffey
If you have your Bible tonight we are studying the book of Galatians and I want you to turn to Galatians 5 where last Sunday night we talked about the life of liberty and the life of license and the life of legalism. You don't have to get off on one extreme or legalism or to the other...

by Jerry Branch
Most of us remember watching the Superman Television series or the Superman movies. Remember who Superman was in his everyday life? He was Clark Kent, the gentle, mild reporter. Even Clark Kent was meek and mild…he showed Gentleness…some would call it 'wimpy' or weak…but…Maybe we need to be like Superman...
The Fruit of the Spirit (5 of 5)
by Jonathan McLeod
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23). Imagine how different our relationships would be if we were always people of love
From Aggressiveness to Gentleness (8 of 9)
by Ed Rowell
A woman was being tailgated by a stressed-out man on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of her. She did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though she could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating man hit the roof and the horn, screaming in frustration...
Gentleness Is Love's Humility (8 of 9)
by Dennis Marquardt
In a culture of rough-and-rugged individualism, gentleness is thought of as weakness, being soft, and virtually spineless. Not so! ... Biblical gentleness is ''strength under control,'' in fact, the Greek word translated in Gal. 5:23 ''Gentleness'' came from a term that was used of a wild horse that had become obedient to the bit and bridle. It was therefore not the lack of...

But one day, while working into the late hours of the evening, he discovered that his junkyard was located on an oil field. He hired a drilling crew, and soon the black gold flowed abundantly from the...
Fruit That Proves
by Johnny Hunt
1 Cor. 2:14, ''But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.'' ''Spiritually discerned'' means to be so gripped in the ways of moral darkness as to be part of it. They were not just in darkness, but darkness was in them...

It is a sound that Motivates Having been a soldier in a combat zone, I know all too well that the morale of the troops is so very important with respect to their fighting ability and success.

Tough and Tender (12 of 36)
by Keith Krell
o you remember the last time you were spanked? It was probably more years ago than you care to recall, but try. Perhaps you were discovered in a lie, or caught stealing candy from a neighborhood drugstore, or sent home from school for fighting. Whatever the reason, you found yourself face-to-face with an angry parent whose look of...
Careful How You Walk! (25 of 36)
by Jerry Vines
This is the seventh time in the book of Ephesians that reference has been made to walking. He is not talking about literal walking, he is using it as a picture of living the Christian life. He started back in chapter 2, verse 2 where it says that before we were saved we walked according to the course of this world. We lived our lifestyle in a...
