Every Christian cherishes the fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5:22–23. Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness. Faithfulness. Gentleness. And self-control. These are the marks of godly character that we strive to display. But has it ever occurred to you that these are also the characteristics of God? Can it be that God loves us with the fruit of the Spirit? And only when we are secure in that love can we display it to others? On Thursday’s Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, author, Jessica Thompson shares with us that the more we behold who God is and the nature of His love, the more we will, by the work of the Spirit, become like Him.
Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Thursday to update us on praying for the persecuted church all over the world. Keep praying for China during the Olympics--there are Christians praying in 155 countries!
