Devotion for the Day

Today, I was reading my devotion, and felt convicted by God. The verse for the day was 2 Peter 1:3,  “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” God doesn’t stop at giving us things we need to live our physical life, clothing, food, shelter, transportation, and every other need here on Earth. He gives us things we need for our spiritual life: strength, faithfulness, forgiveness, concern, love, and grace. We really don’t do anything to deserve it, so, I feel like I should be doing more, thanking Him by walking with him, producing fruit on the vine (God) that holds the branches (us), purple-grapes-553464_1280which, if we are spiritually healthy in Christ, displaying the attributes of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, or, as we well know it, the fruit of the Spirit, we will produce juicy, prodigious grapes. I made the connection between the grape vine and the fruit of the Spirit in John 15:2. I know I can thank God by obeying him, worshiping Him, exercising my faith, and showing love to my neighbor and love to God, like the Golden Rule tells us.
