GPW Minute 4/27: God's Gift of Gentleness!

God’s Intention for You Is the Fruit of the Spirit! Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of GENTLENESS A WORD FROM THE LORD (Read slowly, welcoming the Spirit’s gifts to you) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:23-24 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT Jesus is still washing feet. Before launching into the work of ministry today, allow the Lord Jesus to prepare you. Pause for a moment, remember the basin and towel, and the waters of your own baptism! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Teach me, Lord, to serve in the same spirit of gentleness with which You washed the feet of the disciples, and washed away my sins. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the Holy Spirit who imparts the fruit of His presence: gentleness. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Vocational As I grow in God’s grace of Vocational GENTLENESS, I am finding joy in HUMILITY as I serve through my calling and gifts.
