Peace in the Pandemic, part 5: Getting More Fruit of the Spirit

Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,

We’ve all learned that asking God for patience results in a test of our patience!

We’re already feeling tested enough with the pandemic! So, how do we ask God for patience without getting a test?

Listen in on my secret to having peace that passes understanding.

Jesus said, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” (Luke 11:13 NASB)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23 NASB)

Or should it be punctuated like this?

The fruit of the Spirit is love: Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

In Christ,

Cheryl
