Definition:(of a plant, animal, or person) Producing much fruit or foliage or many offspring.
I want to point out the “or person” producing much fruit. When applied with a foundation of Biblical texts this is a positive thing. The fruits of the Spirit are found in Galatians 5:22-23 “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”
This is what tonight meant to me. Tonight I started Highlands College. Explained here http://www.thehighlandscollege.com/
The fruits of the Spirit are the quintessential characteristics of Christ, and by extension how we ought to conduct our lives. Tonight I was introduced to men and women of God who have set themselves apart as Servants to the will of God. Tonight I have been challenged on what felt like a one on one level in a room filled with people. God’s presence was in and through every word taught tonight.
Through the work of these men and women who have sacrificed before me I will learn how to sacrifice. I will learn how to reveal His life through the revelations of these men and women of God.
What tonight did for me is truly put into perspective that He is present! Tonight was also a revelation of His greatness.
What has occurred in your life recently that has left you in awe of Him?
