Fruit of the Spirit

Week 1: Peace
Week 2: Forbearance
GOODNESS

You are a God of enduring goodness, and you desire your people to act out that goodness in the world.

Forgive us, Jesus, for we have failed, so often, to do good. Forgive us for extending kindness only to those we feel deserve it. Forgive us for allowing excuses—of business, of resources, of capacity—to erode the simple command to follow your example. Spirit, teach us how to extend your goodness to those around us, even when it costs us something. Help us do good to all, without expecting good in return.

Sung Response:  Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy on us. (x2)

Your sin has been crucified with Christ Jesus, and you are forgiven. You are free to walk in the fullness of the life offered to you by the Spirit of God.

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
