Wisdom From Heaven #8 - FULL OF GOOD FRUIT

Wisdom From Heaven #8 - FULL OF GOOD FRUIT

This is the eighth post in the series called "Wisdom from Heaven".  In this series we will be studying James chapter 3, which details how to put heavenly wisdom into practice in our everyday lives.

Today we are focusing on being FULL OF GOOD FRUIT from heaven.

By "fruit" we are talking about our godly characteristics that are shown through our actions - this is called "The Fruit of the Spirit." (see verses below)

A few years ago I did a series on The Fruit of the Spirit.  Below each characteristic there is a link to the post that will discuss each characteristic in more detail (please feel free to click on each link)


True love is void of fear - Where there is love, no fear can exist.  When fear is present then trust will never be possible.


This JOY is a deep happiness that comes from a personal relationship with God - including a sense of us fulfilling His will.


Tranquility of the heart and spiritual harmony is based on forgiveness through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We are at peace when our conscience is clear......when we know that we have been forgiven.


Jesus' has enough patience for everyone and for is never ending......goes on for eternity......unlimited.  We must follow Christ's example and His glory will shine through us.


Jesus is the ultimate example of kindness.
"And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus."  Ephesians 2:6 & 7


What is goodness?
- It is doing what is right - Justice with love. 
The opposite of good is evil.


God will do amazing things for you when you are faithful 


Our gentleness comes from within - from the Holy Spirit - let's make sure that we draw from that on a daily basis so that Jesus' love will shine through our actions and our words.


"It (God's Word) teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age." Titus 2:12

Living a life full of good fruit does not happen overnight.  Implementing Wisdom from Heaven (and specifically Good Fruit) is worth the long term effort.
