REALITY, WHAT IS IT? The Spiritual or REAL person is described in Galatians 5:22. He has love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. This is what God is looking for! Let us ask our Father that all of these may be ours.

Let us lay aside that which would hinder our being filled with the Holy Spirit. For when we are filled, this fruit listed above will be ours. We are nothing; He has and is everything. If we ask our Father in Heaven, nothing wavering, He will make us the kind of children we desire to be. “Ask and it shall be given thee” (Matthew 7:7).

One of the fruits of a Spiritual man or woman is that they have FAITH.
1.    Faith causes a person to “look up” when everyone else has “given up.”
2.    Faith causes a person to have “hope” when things look “hopeless.”
3.    Faith causes a person who has “nothing” to ask His Father for “all things.”
4.    Faith causes a person to say with Job, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.”
5.    Faith will cause members of this church to not only ask fervently of our Father for the finances and for   
       lost mankind, but Faith will expect the help that we need.

“If God be for us, who shall be against us?”
