VerseD: Galatians 5:22-23

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

If you lack any of these fruits, examine yourself and your salvation. All of these will spring forth as you pursue the righteousness of God and love others.

VerseD: 1 John 2:15-16

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
1 John 2:15‭-‬16, NASB

Love your neighbor, but do not desire his things. Love your neighbor, but do not desire her. Love your neighbor, but do not seek authority.

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:10

“I, the Lord , search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.”
Jeremiah 17:10, NASB

God will judge every person: first, on how we each respond to His Son, then by how we respond to others because of His Son.

VerseD: Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
Hebrews 11:6, ESV

Jesus is the only way to God, and it is only by putting your faith in Him that you find that way. Apart from faith in Christ, you are wandering like a blind man and far from God.

VerseD: Psalm 37:5

Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
Psalms 37:5, NASB

This is not simply a “Lord, bless what I am doing” thing. Our desires and plans should be aligning with God’s. As our wills align, He will do it, because it is already His will.

Habakkuk 3:17-18

Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the Lord , I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
Habakkuk 3:17‭-‬18, NASB

Do you trust and worship God?

Not just when things are going, but also when everything is going well? (And vice versa?)

VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:13

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13, ESV

Hope springs from faith.

Faith springs from love.

Love springs from dedication and choice.

Choose love. Always.
