Last week: Law VS. Spirit.

 

FRUIT: What is your favorite fruit?  Shout it out!

 

SLIDE: Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

SLIDE: Nourishment / Attractive

The edible part. The good part!  Attractive!

There is NO LAW!

Kingdom of Norway – Global Crop Diversity Trust

 

GOSPEL –  Explanation

Jesus calls his life a “SEED”

John 12: 23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.  truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

 

Nourishment / Attractive

The edible part. The good part!  Attractive!

 

SLIDE: Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

SLIDE: Forbearance

Before –  the bear – makes an entrance

= forbearance

 

SLIDE: Jeff Easter’s BLACK BEAR PIC

 

Elizabeth Bambury :  DUKE mathematics

 

Polar bears are the only truly carnivorous bears, all other types eat both plants and animals (in other words, they are not seeking to attack you!). In addition the only polar bear populations in the United States live in the outer-reaches of Alaska, and since 1968 there have only been 9 fatal polar bear attacks in the US, 4 of them were a result of humans climbing into zoo enclosures.

 

2017,  2 killed in US.  Alaska.

69 people killed by lawnmowers

16 people lightening

 

325.7 million in 2017 bears 2. This means that, in 2017

 

0.00000000614062% chance of being killed by a black bear

 

SLIDE: Forbearance

Before –  the bear – makes an entrance

= forbearance

 

But in Paul makrothymia

Rom 2:4: God’s forbearance leads to repentance!

Corinthians 13:4 LOVE – GOD IS PATIENT

from makros = long, distant, far off, large + thumos = temper

HEBREW = LONG NOSTRILS (NOSED)

 

hanging in there with patient love and kindness

Chrysostom defined it as the spirit which has the power to take revenge but never does so.

“Against such things as these there is no law.”

 

SLIDE:  Feet to Our Faith

FRUIT IS from THE HOLY SPIRIT!

FRUIT: It takes care, pruning

Make beans into chocolate

PARENTS!

LIFE GROUPS

FRUIT takes work!!!

 

SLIDE: These Fruits… speak about where the fruit came from!

Virtues from Aristotle are brought about by practical wisdom and practice.

Aristotle: Character traits:  The ideal human. Athenian Society!

A Citizen of heaven!

Jesus is the answer to each of these!
