Galatians 5:22, 23a – “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
Thank and praise God who has been with us and blessed us abundantly last year. In 2015 my focus was to bear visible fruit. I was burdened until I lost the joy of life. God revealed this problem through studying the book of Samuel. Most importantly, he also taught me about inner fruit that pleases God. So I chose Galatians 5:22-23a as the key verse for 2016.
Hebrews 12:2 – “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Key verse: Psalms 121,1-2 “I lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
