Memorize and Reflect

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control… ([bible]Galatians 5:22-23[/bible])


Prayer Direction

Take time to confess where you are lacking in growth in a specific fruit of the Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you, convict you, and empower you as you seek to grow character that looks more and more like Jesus with each passing year.


“Live It!” Challenge

Pick Two Take time to prayerfully identify one fruit of the Spirit that really needs to grow and be nurtured in your life. Identify a couple of simple daily practices that will help propel you forward in growth in this area of your spiritual journey. Ask at least one person to pray for you and keep you accountable in your growth goals in this area. Take time to identify one fruit of the Spirit that is consistently growing in your life. Set one goal for continued growth and use of this fruit for the glory of God!
