“The New Normal #6

“Gentleness”

 

Sign of the end times is an increase in violence; the sign of hope is gentleness.

 

Galatians 6:1-5

 

Gentleness: Strength under control

 

Gentleness is the evidence of spiritual maturity and our new trade mark as believers. All will benefit from gentleness, those restoring someone who has sinned; lifting the burden of others and sharing instruction must have gentleness as a part of the norm.

 

How to identify the real deal

 

1.    They are not hung up on a person’s outward life.

2.    They are there when the heat gets turned up.

3.    They won’t ask you do something they haven’t done.

4.    They tend to be very tender and gentle spirits.

 

Galatians 6:7-10

 

How to identify the Spiritual scam.

 

1.    People who want to tell you how God works and yet they don’t really know Him. V:7

2.    People who want to do whatever they feel like but believe they still will reap good life. V:7b-8

3.    People, who are weary, weary of church, weary of people, weary of life and they say everyone feels the same way. V:9

4.    People who always want to receive good but it’s been a long time since they done any good. V:10

 

 Isaiah 1:18

 

My God can change red to white and darkness to light and He does it with His Spirit that has the fruit of gentleness.
