But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.Galatians 5:22-25

Galatians 6:14: “But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”

Galatians 5:22 King James Version (KJV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Galatians 2:18 “Why, if I am now rebuilding that structure of sin which I had demolished, I am thereby constituting myself a transgressor.”

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

(Galatians 6:7)

Why "Good" Friday? How can a man suffering one of the most excruciating executions known to history be 'good'?

 

The cross is a romantic symbol to Christendom now, but it was not then. Imagine the crowd's reaction when, before He went to the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ said these words:

 

"If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it. For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels."

 

Christ Jesus tells the crowd that if they want to follow Him... they must take up their cross.

 

Now, with the atoning work done, we understand. Then, they did not. Any mention of the "cross" sent a chill of terror through those who heard it. There was nothing positive, nothing romantic about it. The cross meant the crucifixion, a barbaric, agonizing execution meant to inflict the maximum amount of shame and torture upon the victim. Roman crucifixions were carried out in public so that all who saw the horror would be deterred from crossing the Roman government. Crucifixion was so horrible that it was presumably reserved for only the worst offenders, yet the hillsides were covered with the crosses and victims.

 

The victim of crucifixion was first severely scourged or beaten, an ordeal that was life-threatening by itself. Then he was forced to carry the large wooden crossbeam to the site of the crucifixion. Bearing this load was not only extremely painful after the beating, but it added a measure of shame as the victim was carrying the instrument of his own torture and death. It was like digging one’s own grave.

 

So, when Jesus eyes the large crowd following Him and tells them that they will need to "take up their cross" to follow Him, they understood He was inviting them to death.

 

The cross was a stumbling block for those who thought God could never be cursed in such a way. Yet God tells us that He was, in fact, defeating the curse for us:

 

"For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.” Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, “The righteous man shall live by faith.” However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, “He who practices them shall live by them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”— in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." **

 

The curse of the Law is that the Law is perfect because it is God's Law. Thus it must be perfectly kept. Never a single sin in our lifetime. But "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" *** We have all sinned, egregiously, and so we have fallen short of the standard God requires. Perfection. So we are all under the curse of the perfect Law of God.

 

Christ Jesus takes our form and, for over 30 years, lives the perfect, sinless life that God demands. So, at His death, He is the perfect, acceptable sacrifice to the Father for our sins.

 

"This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them." ****

 

Ah, so the cross is good news indeed! Set free from the penalty and power of sin! Declared righteous before God! All through the work of Christ Jesus on the cross.

 

It was a very good Friday, after all.

The sculpture up front is the Dying Gaul, and the couple at the window is Cupid and Psyche.

 

The dying Gaul is also known as 'The dying Galatian' - and before the motif was correctly identified, 'The dying Gladiator'. This Roman marble sculpture is likely a copy a Hellenistic bronze piece commissioned by Attalus I of Pergamon in the 3rd century B.C. (now lost). The exact place of discovery of this sculpture is not known - it might have been discovered in the early 17th century when Villa Ludovisi was being built, later a lot of other ancient sculptures were found in this area which covered the ancient Garden of Sallust. This piece was first officially recorded in 1623 in an inventory of the collections of the Ludovisi family. But before the middle of the 18th century it was added to the Capitoline collections where it is still a central feature. That this is a Celtic man (the Galatians were a Celtic tribe, as were the Gauls) is clearly seen on his torque (necklace) and hair-style. This was known to scholars since the mid-19th century but the older name (the dying gladiator) stuck into the 20th century.

 

Cupid and Psyche, a Roman marble copy from the first or second century A.D. of a Hellenistic original, was discovered on the Aventine Hill in 1749 and was given to the Capitoline Museums by Pope Benedict XIV. The story of Cupid (or Amor, or Eros) and Psyche has come down to us from Antiquity in text Metamorphoses by Apuleius (also known as The Golden Ass) - but they are known from Greek art since the 4th century B.C.

 

Both pieces were taken by Napoleon Bonaparte to Paris after the Treaty of Tolentino in 1787 - but they were returned after his fall from power.

 

The third piece is a sculpture of the goddess Flora from the Roman Imperial period - originally she is from Villa Adriana (emperor Hadrian's villa) near Tivoli, outside of Rome.

 

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Another in a series on Fruit of the Spirit. I tried to find a physical fruit that was spelled, at least a little, like each of the nine fruits of the Spirit named in Galatians 5:22-23.

 

I have actually had gooseberry pie, but it's been a long time.

 

Thanks for looking!

The Dying Galatian is a Roman marble copy of a Hellenistic work of the late 3rd century BC.

It has commonly been assumed that the original bronze was part of a statuary group on the Pergamon's acropolis memorializing the victory of Attalos in 230 BC over the Gauls.

In spite of the fact that it represents a defeated fighter, it still preserves his bravery and fearlessness.

The sculpture depicts physical suffering expressively and it try to provoke an emotional reaction from the observer.

The next-to-last graphic of a series, illustrating the Fruit of the Spirit with "real" fruit, using fruit that begins with at least the same letter as the Fruit of the Spirit emphasized.

 

Thanks for looking!

Galatians 6:7

"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap."

 

I knew people who mocked and ridiculed the deity Yahuah God, and their 'lights' just gradually went out to darkness, gone in disgrace.

Statue of Cupid and Psyche, Hall of the Galatian, Musei Capitolini, Rome

One of a series (See Album, "fruit of the Spirit") which uses actual fruit, which name somewhat resembles one of the fruits of the Spirit. In this case, they both begin with "pa."

 

I hope I manifest these fruits, or this fruit.

 

Thanks for looking.

One of a series (See album) of physical, plant fruit, used to display the nine fruits of the Spirit, as described in Galatians 5:22-23. Faith (also may be translated as faithfulness) is one of these fruits of the Spirit. I picked fruit that had a name that started with the same sound or letters as the Fruit of the Spirit illustrated. I confess that I had never heard of feijoa until I did this poster.

 

Thanks for looking! Be faithful.

Lost unregenerate men know nothing of this struggle!

(Frank Hall)

 

"For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you cannot do the things that you would." Galatians 5:17

 

In this one verse the apostle Paul describes the thing that continually plagues every Christian.

We, as the people of God, desire more than anything to love God perfectly, but can't.

We long to cease from sin and ungodliness, but can't.

We strive to worship our God with our entire being, but can't.

We try to do good and honor God in all things, but can't.

 

Why do we continually do, say, feel, and think things that are evil?

Why are we so hard-hearted, unforgiving, and ignorant?

Why can't we do what we desire most?

 

It's because we have two natures called . . .

flesh and spirit,

sin and righteousness,

Adam and Christ.

 

We do indeed believe our God, but not as we would.

We do love our Savior, but not as we would.

We do live for His honor and glory, but not as we would.

 

Our flesh won't allow us. It always interferes. It keeps us from doing the things that we would. When we would do good--then evil is present with us.

Our most fervent faith, is mixed with unbelief.

Our most selfless sacrifices, are mixed with selfishness.

Our most ardent prayers and supplications, are marred by our infirmities.

Our most spiritual moments, are contaminated by our sickening carnality.

Our meekest hours of submission and dependence on God, are corrupted by our self-will and pride.

Every mountain top experience of spiritual pleasure, is tinged with shameful wanderings within.

Our clearest views of Christ are darkened by error, misconceptions, and preconceived notions.

Even when our hearts seem to be most fixed on God's glory, they are torn between this world and the next.

 

The reality is, that as long as we live in this world--we will be at war within ourselves! The flesh will not submit to the Spirit--and the Spirit will not submit to the flesh. We will be . . .

pulled this way one moment--and that way the next;

believing one moment--and doubting the next;

praising God in the morning--then murmuring at night;

seeking God's will today--and our will tomorrow.

As long as we live in this body of flesh there will be a constant struggle within us--a struggle between flesh and Spirit.

 

Lost unregenerate men know nothing of this struggle! This internal warfare is peculiar to believers. Unbelieving, unregenerate, impenitent, rebellious, lost sinners know nothing of this fight with SELF. They don't loathe themselves as all believers do; they love themselves. They have but one nature--and that is sin, which rules in their hearts supremely. Lost men do not have grace within, to oppose the works and motions of the flesh. All they have is a nature that is dead in trespasses and sin, that walks according to the course of this world.

 

The struggle doesn't begin within a man, until that man is born of God's Spirit and given the gift of life and faith in Christ.

 

This war between our flesh and Spirit is best for us. If it were not so, then God would not allow it. God is in control of this fight, and has ordained it for us in His infinite wisdom and grace. This constant battle within our hearts is good for us, because it keeps us looking to Christ--ever seeking Him, His grace, His help, His power. This lifelong fight will make the prize that much sweeter--when Jesus will present us "to Himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless!" Ephesians 5:27

The last of nine graphics, attempting to highlight the Fruit of the Spirit, as given in Galatians 5:22-23, by using fruit that might be purchased in some grocery-store or market, with each Fruit of the Spirit having a poster with a solid fruit that begins with the same one or more letters as the Fruit of the Spirit.

 

Thanks for looking!

It is the annual open air Christmas service in Turtle Crossing Park. There has been much fellowship in the consideration of God's truth. Pastor Charles Calvin now delivers the closing thoughts.

 

Pastor Calvin: Friends, we began at midnight* and there has been much joy as we've gathered together in the Word of God to consider this time. Now, the dawn breaks and I point you back to our opening, "Because of the tender mercy of our God, With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us, To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace." **

 

As the sun rises on us, let us go forth in the light of God's gift. What is Christmas? "For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this." ***

 

When? "But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law" ****

 

Where? "But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Too little to be among the clans of Judah, From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, From the days of eternity." *****

 

How? "Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.”" ******

 

Who? "She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”" *******

 

Why? "This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them." ********

 

Merry Christmas, friends! Sisters Audrey and Winky will lead us in our closing song.

 

🎵 O Holy Night,

The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Savior's birth

Long lay the world in sin and e'er pining

'Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

 

Fall on your knees O hear the angels voices.

O night divine O night when Christ was born

O night divine, O night, O night divine. 🎶

Beginning a series of posters, using actual fruit as a background of posters based on the fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:22-23. The plant-based fruits used have names something like the names of the fruits of the Spirit. I couldn't find a fruit with a name very close to "love," so used a fruit beginning with the same two letters.

 

I didn't know what a loganberry was until I did this poster.

 

Thanks for looking!

St. Paul's description of how the Holy Spirit works in the life of the believer, bringing out unselfish love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness and self-control (meekness and temperance in some translations). I need divine help in showing all of these. Taken from Galatians 5:22-23, World English Bible, public domain.

Galatians 2:16

Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

In our spiritual nature, faith causes us to wait eagerly for the confidence that comes with God's approval - Galatians 5:5

For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
