Joy (Happiness) is such an important emotion for us. But it isn’t the source. God is the source, Joy is the fruit. Let your joy be free of circumstances and be filled from the Lord. “The world is poor because her fortune is buried in the sky and all her treasure maps are of earth.” –Calvin Miller
The fruits of the Spirit grow slow and steady if we Abide in the Lord. An short exploration in the primary fruit ,Love.
We need to keep in mind that we are earthly tents, temporary dwellings that will be packed up when we head home to Heaven. “So that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.” But what we do in this world echos into eternity.
Some times we focus too much on the material of this world when eternity lay before us. The rich farmer planned for his wealth, but he was wearing dead mans boots.
A new year tends to bring new resolutions. But there is no renewal like the renewal in Christ. Humanism will fail us, what we need is a new heart. We need God to clean us and give us a new heart, to put His spirit in us.
