A Spirit of Gentleness

Posted by Todd Naevestad on

We're getting ready for worship on Sunday! View worship bulletins >>

This Sunday we begin our new series, Gentle. Gentleness is one fruit of the Spirit that we may not haven given a lot of thought to. With Pastor Tim McConnell, we'll take a long look at what it means to be gentle and how gentleness makes us more like Christ.

Minister of Worship and Music Jim DeJarnette put together the words for this Sunday's Hymn of Response in our Sanctuary services. In it, our need for the Holy Spirit to shape our lives is central. For the fruit of the Spirit to growwe need His Spirit in us. Take some time to read through the lyrics and reflect on how the Spirit can work in your life and push you closer to a spirit of Gentleness.

"Come Holy Spirit, Shape Our Lives"

Come Holy Spirit, shape our lives,
   Through Him Who sacrificed;
Until His ev’ry virtue thrives,
   And we become like Christ;
Until His ev’ry virtue thrives,
   And we become like Christ!

Come Holy Spirit, guide our minds,
   With knowledge of His word;
Until His perfect wisdom shines,
   And we reveal our Lord;
Until His perfect wisdom shines,
   And we reveal our Lord!

Come Holy Spirit, reach our hearts,
   Let Jesus mold our lives;
Till loving transformation starts,
   And we bear fruit for Christ;
Till loving transformation starts,
   And we bear fruit for Christ!

Words: James DeJarnette; Tune: Coronation
