God’s Fruitful Gentle Spirit Within Us

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit” Galatians 5:22-23,25 O beloved child of God, praise your gracious Lord Jesus Christ, Who is “full of grace and truth” (John 1:14,16), for He has filled you with the fruit of His Spirit, which is the fruit of His Own presence within you. We are so blessed to be filled with our Lord’s Holy Spirit so that His Own love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and gentleness may occupy our thoughts and permeate our being throughout

The Power Of Gentleness

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth” 2 Timothy 2:24-25 According to this wise word from the apostle Paul, “gentleness” is much better, for all involved, than being “quarrelsome.” Paul was in prison when he wrote these words to Timothy. He knew his own life was drawing to a close. “ The time of my departure has come” Paul declared, adding, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:6-7). Prior to h

Praise God For His Gentle Wisdom

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace” James 3:17-18 Praise God for His wisdom, which He has abundantly provided for us in “Christ Himself, in Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:2-3). And Praise God for the beautiful nature of His wisdom, as revealed to us in this passage from the letter of James. Once more the word “gentle” appears, this time as a characteristic of God’s wisdom. We know that our Savior and High Priest, Jesus Christ, i

Your Gentle Spirit

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near” Philippians 4:5 For the past four days I have been sharing with you on the theme of “ministering as a priest the gospel of God,” as Paul exhorted the Christians in Rome (Romans 15:16). We have looked at specific qualities of Christ our High Priest in Hebrews (mercy, sympathy, gentleness - Hebrews 2:17, 4:15, 5:2) and also at God’s word admonishing us to be “ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence” 1Peter 3:15. Jesus Christ, our High Priest, has instructed each of us to “take my yoke upon you and lea

Sanctify Christ As Lord In Your Heart

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence” 1 Peter 3:15 To sanctify Christ as Lord in our hearts is to set Him apart in a holy place within us. This is what we do as priests in our heavenly Father’s a kingdom of priests (1 Peter 2:9, Revelation 1:5-6). Jesus Christ, our High Priest, is sanctified, or set apart, in the inner court within us. When we are “ministering to the Lord” (Acts 13:2), we are in the inner court, in our innermost being, before our Lord in His presence, ministering to Him as priests. The in

The Nature Of Our Priesthood

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the grace that was given me from God, to be a minister of Jesus Christ to the gentiles, ministering as a priest the gospel of God” Romans 15:15-16 For the past two days we have been considering Paul’s exhortation to the church at Rome concerning “ministering as a priest the gospel of God,” specifically how “Ministering as a priest” enhances our understanding of preaching the gospel. When we minister “as a priest” this means that not only is the message of the gospel important, but so also is the presentation and nature of the one speaking the gospel important. It’

The Importance Of Ministering As A Priest

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the grace that was given me from God, to be a minister of Jesus Christ to the gentiles, ministering as a priest the gospel of God” Romans 15:15-16 Why is it so important, and imperative, that we minister “as a priest the gospel of God?” For one thing, a priest is a mediator, between God and people. A priest of God profoundly desires to see people reconciled with God. This is our goal. This is a much needed added dimension of understanding for us as we proclaim the gospel. We are not merely telling people the gospel, and “letting the chips fall where they may,” as

Ministering As A Priest The Gospel Of God

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the grace that was given me from God, to be a minister of Jesus Christ to the gentiles, ministering as a priest the gospel of God” Romans 15:15-16 As the apostle Paul summed up and concluded His masterful letter to the church in Rome, he reminded the Christians in Rome to “be a minister of Jesus Christ to the gentiles.” We need not fight in anger, or argue, condemn or vilify but, by all means, we do always need to act as a minister of Jesus Christ to all unbelievers (and to all believers as well for that matter). What’s the best way to “be a minister of Jesus Chri

Taking Refuge

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “How precious is Your lovingkindness O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; and You give them to drink of the river of Your delights. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light” Psalm 36:7-9 Taking “refuge in the shadow of Your wings” is yet another picture of our drawing near to God as priests in His presence, “ministering to the Lord” (Acts 13:2). Stepping into the inner court of the temple of God within us, as we have been seeing, is like coming to our Lord and gathering under His wings, as close to His protective presence as possible, unde

Feast In Abundance

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen that you may live” Isaiah 55:2-3 For the past three days I have been sharing with you from the Scripture that says “the priests who are near to the Lord shall eat the most holy things” (Ezekiel 42:13). This passage from Isaiah explains the practical application of this process. As priests unto our Lord, it is our first desire, delight, and ministry to incline our ears and come to Him, Jesus Christ our High Priest, in His presence. It is when we

Our Spiritual Communion

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The priests who are near the Lord shall eat the most holy things” Ezekiel 42:13 Eating and digesting God’s word within God’s presence, as His priest, guarantees you the brightest possible light upon God’s word as you read and feed. Jesus Christ is our bread of life, our daily bread, and the nearer we draw to Him, as priests in His presence, the more we become aware of His holiness and the blessed spiritual communion we are graced with, to feed from Him in His Own presence. In His presence everything is holy and we are awakened to see the holy in His presence. This beautiful light, His light, the light of Him Himself, shows us the “most holy things
