August 5 th : Fruit: Faithfulness
Scripture: Daniel 3:13-18, 1 Corinthians 15:56-58
God is always faithful. God has never failed us. He is consistent and ever present in our lives. We, as faithful followers of Jesus, need the Spirit to grow faithfulness in us. Our faithfulness increases as we build a relationship with God and we learn to trust Him. Faithfulness is about not knowing the outcome of a situation, but trusting that God will see us through no matter what. We grow in faith as we grow in
relationship with Jesus. How is the Spirit producing faithfulness in you?
August 12 th : Fruit:
Scripture: 2 Peter 1:3-10, Galatians 5: 13-16
Some of us do a fantastic job at controlling our words, actions and desires. Others of us struggle daily with self-control. Our society says we are welcome to do whatever we would like and not to worry about the consequences. But that’s not what God says. The temptations that lead us to sin need to be controlled. We must capture our thoughts and control our actions as people who claim to follow Jesus. But we do not have to do it on our own. We are able to rely both on our relationship with God and our
relationship with other followers of Jesus. We have to hold each other accountable, especially if we struggle with self-control. How is the Spirit producing self-control in you? Who holds you accountable?
Weekly Worship Service with a message from Pastor Mindi Gochnaur, traditional hymns, contemporary praise songs and special music by Emmanuel's Sanctuary, Hand Bell, Children's and Youth Choirs.
Fruit: A 9 week series on what the Holy Spirit produces in us as we seek to faithfully follow Jesus. These
fruit are not like the kind that we consume, where we get to choose what we like and what we do not.
All of these fruit are to be evident in our lives as the Spirit works in us.
