Welcome back to our Fruit of Spirit Series.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
The Power of Gentleness
1 Corinthians 4:20-21 (NIV)
20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. 21 What do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a whip, or in love and with a gentle spirit?
1 Kings 19:12 (NIV)
And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
God was speaking to Elijah in a gentle voice and asking, what are you doing here Elijah, I want you to go back and finish my work. Stop running away, I will take care of you.
