The Lord is speaking to us about living in the fear of the Lord and as we live from God, because of God and for God, we will bear the fruit of the Spirit. As believers in Christ Jesus we are joined to God and to His people to manifest God's nature and will on earth as it is in Heaven. As the believer is rooted in Christ, he will bear the fruit of God's love.
Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about forgiveness and how the believer is required to forgive others as he is forgiven by the Lord. God's unfailing love (Agape) is revealed through forgiveness and those who are rooted in God's love are those who forgive. The Lord showed us three principles that reveal His heart and the urgency for believers to forgive one another:
- Forgive those who sin against you. Matthew 6:12
- Forgive and be forgiven. Matthew 6:14
- Don't forgive and you won't be forgiven. Matthew 6:15
Forgiving others bears witness to the power and love of God at work in our lives!
We praise God for teaching us how to love as He loves us and for the revelation of His unfailing love! Hallelujah!
We are looking forward to our Healing Presence Seminar from 10 - 13 November with Dr Richard Maybery. Click here for more details.
