In Step with the Spirit

Faith in the face of adversity
Hope in the midst of despair
Love in response to hostility
Peace that surpasses understanding
Gentleness that exceeds all demanding
Forgiveness beyond all wounding
Patience that abounds above all trials
Compassion that flows from a pure heart, a pure mind, and a pure life
Wisdom that seeks the good of others
Knowledge that escapes every aspect of pride
Righteousness that seeks the very face of God
Purity that avoids every appearance of evil
Holiness that spurns every notion of pride
Humility that is never feigned
Contentment in all things
Mercy that never yields to vengeance
Devotion that is unwavering:
May you be so filled with Christ
that every aspect of your nature
reflects your unity with him.
