Word at Work September 28, 2012

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
Scripture: 2 Corinthians :11

Fruit number two is the Greek word ap-ol-og-ee-ah, or “the clearing of ourselves.” While it is translated “clearing of ourselves,” what it really means is ‘to recover the right path toward our destiny.’ How many times have we fallen? How many times have we gotten back up? When our children begin riding bicycles, we teach them to, no matter how many times they fall, get up and keep riding. We know they will fall, but if they keep trying they will eventually master the balancing of the bike. The second fruit of true repentance is consistently getting back up and deciding to march on. The more we diligently get back up, the better we get at balancing the bike of God’s righteousness and the closer we get to riding it in victory. Fruit number three is the Greek word ag-an-ak-tay-sis, translated “indignation.” It means ‘to be irritated at the sin and to be determined to be victorious over it.’ We must choose God’s power over whatever fault, failure or sin that besets us. We must choose to say, “God, You are bigger than this captivity. Therefore I trust You to bring me out of it!”
