we are on week 10 of the JOSHUA CODE - but if you want to catch up on the first few verses you can do so by going back a few weeks in the blog and looking for the same image as above!
take it one verse at a time, or feel free to just pick it up with us this week!
Here is last weeks and this weeks verses:
w e e k - t e n
"The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
g a l a t i a n s 5 : 2 2 - 2 3
. . .
A COUNTENANCE THAT IS OBVIOUS : 'love, joy, peace'
A COUNTENANCE THAT IS ORDERLY : 'longsuffering, kindness, goodness'
A CHARACTER THAT IS OBEDIENT : 'faithfulness, gentleness, self-control'
. . .
'As you memorize this verse this week, meditate on a few questions:
What about my countenance? -- Do others see love, joy and peace in me?
What about my conduct? -- Are patience, kindness and goodness characteristic of who I am?
Do I exhibit faithfulness, gentleness and self-control?
The fruit of the spirit is LOVE! Allow Christ to reign and rule in you and through you today. Being comes from doing, for what we do is always determined by who we are. '
(The Joshua Code, pg. 63).
I love what Hawkins says in the introduction of this book talking about the 'Joshua Code':
'The Joshua Code is a challenge to keep God's Word in our mouths through memorization and to keep it in our hearts through meditation "day and night"'.
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success"
j o s h u a 1 : 8
I pray that you continue to come back to the blog for the weekly verses as we learn and memorize scripture verses together and grow in faith and love together!
