God can change us if we desire to change

Galatians 5:22-23 (AMP) 22 But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [[a]that can bring a charge].

Kindness and goodness are both fruit of the spirit. Kindness is an attitude we live with. Goodness is the actions we take because of the kindness attitude. Some folks are born with a kind attitude. Those of us who were not born that way can change. God has given us a seed of kindness, we just have to water that seed a little bit through bible study and self-discipline. God can change us if we desire to change.

What we focus on is what develops and grows in our life. If we focus on ourselves, then we become more selfish. If we focus on blessing others then that is what grows and develops in our lives. To grow and develop there are actions that we need to take. We can read books that will help us develop, begin to change our behavior, and pray that God will help us to develop into the character we want to be.

If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:

Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
