Bearing fruit in the Lord


          Once these divine attributes start to be released into your personality by the Holy Spirit – your job will then be to start to walk and operate in them.   The fruit will give you a credibility with God and with other people that no degree or title can give you in this life.  


           Self-Control is the ability to say yes to the things that are good, right, and pleasing to God and no to the things that are sinful, bad, and dishonoring to the Lord.


          “Do you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God.  You are not your own, you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-201 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 ¿O ignoráis que vuestro cuerpo es templo del Espíritu Santo,ñ el cual está en vosotros, el cual habéis recibido de Dios, y que no sois vuestros?, 20 pues habéis sido compradoso por precio; glorificad, pues, a Dios en vuestro cuerpo y en vuestro espíritu, los cuales son de Dios.p

).  God want you to be pure, sometime it not easy to be sexually pure, but nothing of worth or value is ever easy.


           “We all stumble in many ways.  If anyone is never at fault in what he say, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check” (James 3:2James 3:2

).   What comes out of your mouth is important.  We need to get rid of gossip, swearing, blasphemy( using God’s name as a swear word), dirty jokes, redicule, and lying.   So think, think, think before you speak!


             You know what you ought to do, so ask the Holy Spirit to control you and then step out in faith.  Don’t let your feelings lead you.  Look at each day as a new beginning.  I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but today I’ll commit my ways to Him.  As I am empowered by the Holy Spirit, I’ll practice self-control today (1 Corinthians 9:24-271 Corinthians 9:24-27
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

24 ¿No sabéis que los que corren en el estadio, todos a la verdad corren, pero uno solo se lleva el premio?p Corred de tal manera que lo obtengáis. 25 Todo aquel que lucha, de todo se abstiene;q ellos, a la verdad, para recibir una corona corruptible,r pero nosotros, una incorruptible. 26 Así que yo de esta manera corro, no como a la ventura; de esta manera peleo, no como quien golpea el aire; 27 sino que golpeo mi cuerpo y lo pongo en servidumbre, no sea que, habiendo sido heraldo para otros, yo mismo venga a ser eliminado.

               Ask God to forgive your sins, then ask the Holy Spirit to control your life.  By faith accept that you are now filled and controlled by the Holy Spirit.  You may not feel all tingly inside, but you will have the ability to make right choices and live a life pleasing to God.


           What are you doing with the gifts God has given you?  Discover your gifts,  develop them, and allow God to use them through you.  But don’t compare yourself with anyone else.  Often we look at others and think we’re letting God down because we aren’t doing the same things they are doing.  But God doesn’t need another Billy Graham, He need you.  God wants you!  You have special gifts, talents, and abilities.  Accept responsibility for what God has given you.


Put to use the fruit that God has given you today.


Bearing the fruit of love, LOVE YOU.
