I want people to feel a joy and anticipation of excitement in knowing that all of our relationships will be healed on the New Earth and be greater than ever thought possible.
Hands - What do I want them to do?
We don’t have to wait though until this New Earth is created for our relationships to be better though. We have the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit that bring healing and life to our relationships today. In Galatians 5:22 we are told that the Holy Spirit can produce 9 characteristics in our life that will become a part of who we are and how we live if we decide to follow the Spirit’s leading and allow the Spirit to transform us. Those 9 characteristics are: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. All of these characteristics have to do with relationships and how we treat one another. Through the Holy Spirit today, we have the ability experience more fulfilling relationships here and now if we allow the Holy Spirit to work through us.
Even though we won’t be able to perfectly exhibit all 9 of these characteristics in this life, through the Holy Spirit we can exhibit more of them each and every day we follow the Holy Spirit’s leading. I want all of us to recommit ourselves to Jesus Christ and ask for the Holy Spirit to guide all of our thoughts and actions so we experience more fulfilling relationships until that day we are put on the New Earth.
