What Does Your Fruit Say About You

By Pastor Brenda Gray

Matthew 12:33 (NIV) Make a tree good and its fruits will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruits will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.

Something to think about: The tree is you and you are recognized and judged by your fruits. The fruits are your actions and words. The world is always looking to discredit the saints of God. There are people who will never step a foot into a church. Your life is what they will see. Are you carrying yourself in a manner that is pleasing to God? Are the words that are coming out of your mouth pleasing to God?

I have noticed during my lifetime that people seem to have so many different personalities. When they come to church it is hallelujah and praise the Lord. With their husband they complain, with their children they are fussy and with their friends they are the sweetest people.

People are not consistent. We need to learn to be the person that God has called us to be at all times. People don’t want to sacrifice, they just want to do what’s good for themselves. They never want to get out of their comfort zone.

Starting today let’s start putting others needs before ours, get out of your comfort zone. Let’s be loving, considerate, selfless, thoughtful, kind, understanding etc.  Remember people may doubt what you say, but they will always believe what you do. Amen!

Prayer starter: Father in the name of Jesus, please forgive me for my actions that are not pleasing to you. Please change my character to what you want it to be…

What Does Your Conversation Say About You?

By Pastor Brenda Gray

Colossians 4:6 NJV   Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Something to think about: Salt is a good metaphor for Christian conversation and behavior. Just like salt improves taste; in the same way, what believers say and do should leave a good taste for others. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control which should always be evident within the believers.

Question: What does your conversation represent? Is it full of grace and seasoned with salt?

Prayer: Father in the name of Jesus please forgive me for my behavior and conversation that is not pleasing to the hearer or to you…

Suit Up For Battle

By Yolanda K. Edwards

Ephesians 6:10 – “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devilʼs schemes.” (read Ephesians 6:10-18 when you can)

There is a lot of destruction, violence, illness, confusion, defamation of character, and hypocrisy going on in the world today. All we have to do is turn on the television to see that. Not only are we seeing this nationally, but a lot of us are battling various issues in our own lives. It’s time to suit up for battle, stand firm, and defeat the enemy.  Ephesians lets us know that we fight against principalities and rulers in the spiritual realm. In order to win the battle, we have to fight in the spiritual realm.

Prayer Starter: Lord, your word tells me that the struggles I’m facing and the difficult situations that I’m encountering is not about what it seems to the natural eye, equip me with your full armor and show me how you want me to stand against the enemy…

Higher Level of Thinking

By Yolanda K. Edwards

Isaiah 55:8-9 – “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

On what level are you thinking? Are you thinking on the level in which you wanted to be promoted at work, at church, or in your organization?  First recognize that an elevation, whether on a job, at church, or in your personal life requires a higher level of thinking than in your current position or situation. Think on those things that you may have to consider when making decisions when you are elevated. Begin to think as if you already have the promotion that you desire. Lastly, decide if you are willing to take the pros and the cons of reaching that higher level. Remember, God will elevate you when the time is right, but first, you have to change your mindset.

Prayer Starter: Father, it’s in the name of Jesus that I come, I know my thoughts are not your thought, nor my ways are your ways, but I want to begin to think more like you Lord.  I want to begin to make the decisions that you would have me to make, not the decisions and choices that I would make or even those that would please others.  Help me to lean solely on you to make Godly choices and decisions that will keep me on the path that you have laid out for me.  Change my way of thinking.  Elevate me to a higher level in…
