Enjoying a Spiritual Banquet

The Spirit itself {God} beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God– Romans 8:16. Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Matthew 3:17), and the Bible further states that we are the children of God, Beloved, now are we the sons of God– I John 3:2. Could we be in better company? God is Spirit (John 4:24). We are encouraged to walk in the spirit, for when and where we do, we will walk into the fullness of God and begin enjoying the fellowship of the Spirit– Philippians 2:1, bearing fruit unto holiness- Romans 6:22, blossoming with the fruit of the Spirit- Galatians 5:22-23, and that we should bring forth {this} fruit unto God– Romans 7:4. Hebrews 13:15 encourages, By him {By Jesus Christ} therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. Our heavenly Father immensely enjoys this spiritual fruit we bear (John 15:1-5) and offer to Him as we continue walking with Him in the spirit. In other words ― we can share with Him a fruitful, spiritual banquet consisting of the spiritual qualities of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance!” ~LMJ~

Fruit Unto Holiness!

But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life– Romans 6:22. The work of Jesus Christ made us free so that we may freely serve our God. Fruit represents what we produce as we serve our heavenly Father, and what we produce is holiness, and holiness means purity. We can stand now and forever before our Maker with the assurance of knowing our own heavenly purity, and we can believe today that at the end of this life we will be received into everlasting life.” ~LMJ~
