Weekly Memory Verse: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. " --Galatians 5:22-23.
Each week I've been choosing an area of need and then using scripture as guidance. Although it is beneficial to focus on my weak areas, one by one, acknowledging that God wants me to encompass ALL of the above qualities makes me realize the weight of the responsibilities I hold as a believer. I can't just be loving one week, gentle another, and patient the next. I need to radiate each of the nine elements of Christ if I am to be effective. Granted, I'm human, and I will fall short, but committing this verse to memory will allow me to quickly check myself in moments of sin and recall the characteristics that dwell in me through the Holy Spirit.
