Goodness

Fruit of the Spirit

October 6, 2019 • Bryan Dugger • James 1:17, Acts 10:38, 1 Timothy 6:17-19

The Holy Spirit empowers followers of Jesus Christ with the ability and desire to both be good and do good. If you are born-again, the power to make a difference by being a force for good is readily available and will not expire.

Self-Control

Fruit of the Spirit • November 3, 2019 • Bryan Dugger

God wants His people to exercise disciplined self-restraint while trusting Him to handle the "big picture" of our circumstances. Self-control, then, is about the proper fulfilling of our desires and living submitted to God's perfect will.

Gentleness

Fruit of the Spirit • October 27, 2019 • Bryan Dugger

Gentleness is not a weakness. It is a kind and humble empathy that is neither easily provoked nor slow to forgive. Even more, it is a virtue and fruit of the Holy Spirit that God expects and enables Christians to possess and display.

Faithfulness

God's faithfulness to you is unmatched. And because we are shown this incomparable faithfulness, He expects us to follow His example.
