Walking in the Spirit is a fight

October 2, 2018

Fighting to stay focused for my OneWalk with the Son, under the sun.

A thought…
Practicing the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control requires belief and an awareness that we are always in a fight. Belief in God our creator and Abba Father, in Jesus His son and our savior, and the Holy Spirit which He sent us and lives within us. Awareness that Satan is constantly on the prowl, waiting to attack us spiritually, emotionally and, sometimes, physically. He is always attempting to sow seeds of division, confusion and doubt. We must be ready and fight back.

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior. Help me ready myself for the battle ahead on me today. Stay present, and guide my every thought, word and act. Amen

A verse…
the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

Galatians 5:22-23 NLT

A reading…
The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

This Is How We Fight Our Battles

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, as Christians, we have a real enemy. Satan is constantly on the prowl, waiting to attack us spiritually, emotionally and, sometimes, physically. He is always attempting to sow seeds of division, confusion and doubt. He’ll do anything to make us turn our backs on God. His attacks can be sudden, terrifying and perfectly brutal. So what can we, as believers, do about this vicious bully? We can fight back! We put up a good fight by using the tools God has given us to defeat the enemy. One of the most potent weapons we have in our arsenal is worship.
