Happy Father’s Day!

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1)

Have you wished God a Happy Father’s Day?

Sound a little strange? It shouldn’t. The Bible paints a picture of God as the universe’s ultimate father. He loves us waaaaaaaaaay more than we could ever imagine and loves it when we love him back.

So, what kind of dad is our Heavenly Father? Here are just a few of the words used to describe him:

Spiritual Gifts

We conclude our deeeeep dive into the Holy Spirit here on GUWG with a look at SPIRITUAL GIFTS.

What exactly are spiritual gifts? Great question. The Bible warns us not to be “ignorant” about this topic (1 Corinthians 12:1). In short, they are God-given abilities designed to build up the church today.

SPIRIT WEEK Part 2: Self-control

In SPIRIT WEEK Part 2 here on GUWG, where we’re finishing up our look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Our final featured fruit: SELF-CONTROL.

Right before the Bible lists the fruit of the Spirit, it spells out in graphic detail the “fruit” of our uncontrolled sinful selves: drunkenness, sexual immorality, idolatry, hatred, rage and various other forms of discord, dissension and debauchery.

SPIRIT WEEK Part 2: Gentleness

In Part 2 of SPIRIT WEEK here on GUWG, where we’re taking a look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: GENTLENESS.

In my natural state, I’m about as un-gentle as they come. Without God at the helm, I tend to crash and bang through life at warp speed, leaving a wake of debris, destruction and devastation behind me.

SPIRIT WEEK Part 2: Faithfulness

In SPIRIT WEEK Part 2 here on GUWG, where we’re taking a close look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: FAITHFULNESS.

What exactly is “faith”? Here’s one of my favorite definitions:

SPIRIT WEEK Part 2: Goodness

It’s SPIRIT WEEK Part 2 here on GUWG, where we’re continuing our in-depth look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: GOODNESS.

Jesus said it best: “No one is good — except God alone.” (Mark 10:18)

The entire Bible can be seen as a story about the triumph of good (God) over evil (Satan). The question, then, is this: What side are you on?

The fruit you’re producing is strong evidence of where your heart’s really at. Jesus said:

SPIRIT WEEK Part 2: Kindness

It’s SPIRIT WEEK Part 2 here on GUWG, where we’re continuing our look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: KINDNESS.

Stop reading this right now and go do something kind. Please.
