ROMANS 4:18

Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

MARK 11:23

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

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.”

Do not grow weary in doing good for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.

Galatians 6:9

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

(Galatians 6:7)

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

(Galatians 6:7)

... a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 2:16)

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 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.

 

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!

Yes, most of the time the 'rule of thirds' makes for a more interesting picture. But sometimes I just can't bring myself to cut out a chunk of foreground or sky!

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.

(Galatians 6:3)

Do not grow weary in doing good for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.

Galatians 6:9

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

At night, when dreams enliven our desire for supernatural refuge;

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!

Galatians 5:1 King James Version (KJV)

5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

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.

 

Thanks for looking.

A poster on doing good to others, from Galatians 6:9-10.

 

Thanks for looking!

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

Galatians 5:13

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law" (Galatians 5:22)

Second in a series, posters on the fruit of the Spirit, as described in Galatians 5:22-23, and using the fruit of some plant, with a name that starts with the same letters as the spiritual fruit.

 

I didn't know what a jostaberry was until I made this graphic.

 

Thanks for looking!

Another in a series, putting fruit of the Spirit with actual fruit that has a name that's at least a little like the Spiritual fruit.

 

Thanks for looking.

One of a series, presenting the Fruit of the Spirit, from Galatians 5:22-23, with actual fruit, as close, in name, to the spiritual fruit as possible. In the case of peach and peace, really close!

 

God willing, there will be six more of these. Thanks for looking!

Pile-up for the amazingly talented Skip Staheli!

See the original

 

For the flesh craves what is contrary to the Spirit,

and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh.

They are opposed to one another,

so that you do not do what you want.

 

Galatians 5:17

 

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Galatians 5:1

But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin,

so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ.

Galatians 3:22

From Galatians 5:22-23, Paul's description of the Fruit of the Spirit -- characteristics that a Christ-follower should manifest. These are love (unselfish, Christ-like, agape love), joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness (some translations use "faith") gentleness and self-control. Paul went on to say that there are not laws against these characteristics.

 

I can't be these things by myself. That's why they were called the Fruit of the Spirit, not the fruit of the Christian. A work in progress.

 

Thanks, all of you, for looking! As of today, I've been on Flickr for 13 years.

God’s Salvation Song

  

The ultimate disaster is carrying your sins to your casket. Christ responds to universal sin with a universal sacrifice, taking on the sins of the entire world. But God’s salvation song has two verses. One, He took your place on the cross, which is the first stanza: God’s work for you. But he also takes his place in your heart, which is the second stanza: God’s work in you.

 

Paul explains, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Galatians 2:20). This has powerful implications. Sin may touch you, but it cannot claim you. It cannot condemn you. Trust this truth. Take frequent, refreshing drinks from his well of grace. Your heart is his home, and he is your master. Live with a smile, a skip, and a sparkle in your eye…because of Jesus Christ.

Galatians 5:22 King James Version (KJV)

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

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

(Galatians 6:7)

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.

Galatians 6:7

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