(Galatians 5:13-26, and Matthew 7:21-23)


Summary:

Jared referenced Matthew 7:21-23 and warned against those who use God's name for personal gain. The discussion then shifted to serving others through love, focusing on the fruits of the spirit. Jared highlighted the dangers of using liberty for fleshly desires and warned against using Christ's name for personal gain. The conversation concluded with a prayer and plans to continue studying the book of Acts.


Discussion on True Followers vs. False Claims

Jared discussed the differences between those who truly follow Jesus and those who use His name for personal gain. Jared referenced Matthew 7:21-23, where Jesus states that not everyone who claims to serve Him or even call Him Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven. They further emphasized the need to do God's will instead of merely performing miracles in Jesus' name. The discussion was set to continue with a reading from Galatians 5.


Fruits of the Spirit Over Liberty

Jared discussed the importance of serving one another through love, as outlined in Paul's letters. They emphasized the need to avoid competitive comparisons and focus on the fruits of the spirit, such as love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Jared also highlighted the dangers of using liberty as an opportunity for fleshly desires. They concluded by referencing Matthew 7, warning against those who perform miracles in God's name but do not embody the fruits of the spirit.


Fruits of Spirit Over Personal Glory

Jared emphasized the importance of focusing on the fruits of the spirit, such as love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, rather than seeking personal glory. They warned against using Christ's name for personal gain or to attract attention. They stressed that actions should be performed out of pure heart and in service to others, not for individual recognition. The discussion concluded with a prayer. Jared also mentioned plans to continue studying the book of Acts later, pending their schedule.


In Christ, love Jared W. Campbell
