In the End, It is About Character

I believe in the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, but they are His means to an end. The end is reproducing in us the nature and character of God Himself. Jesus came to show us the Father.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV

If this character of God is not happening in your life, you are missing the boat. (And, yes, that is a reference to Noah and the Flood.) Love is not an act, it is His nature, and our character conforming to His. Divine love is not a gift, it is a process. The Holy Spirit is here to enable that transformation. Don’t diminish the power of the Holy Spirit. Move in the gifts and listen to His voice. He is changing us from selfishness to selflessness. Jesus had this same love, and He gave us the Holy Spirit to finish the work in us!

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:5-8

“These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” John 14:25-26

BECOME LOVE.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and rain in season.
