9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
Today’s Inspiration: Apostle Paul told the Philippian church that they have to apply to their lives what they learnt, received or heard from him so that the God of peace will be with them. Philippians 4:9.
If everyone of us practise what we have learnt and heard from our teachers, scripture, sermon or counsel, we will grow Spiritually and our life will be formed into His image more speedily. Since the Lord is near and in our heart is closer than we think, our gentleness must be evident to all. V5.
Until we apply His solid truths to our life, we can never be set free from every bondage which our Lord Jesus Christ says that only the truth of the Gospel can set us free. John 8:32. Once we are free, we should not be in bondage again. Galatians 5:1. We can only be bound again by our words, thoughts and behaviour that are carnal. Therefore, guard your thoughts and your words as we are judged accordingly. Just as a tree is recognised by its fruit, Matthew 12:33, how we react externally depends on the fruit of the spirit that is within our spirit. Galatians 5:22-23. God be praised for He longs to see fruit in us.
Prayer: Abba Father, in Christ we shall bear good fruit. May we be fruitful and multiply and bear good fruit always! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
