What does the Abundant Life look like? If we think of the Fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5: 22-23), we see Love, Joy, and Peace. This sounds great and we definitely want those things in our lives. But as we continue to read in Galatians, the next fruit is Longsuffering. Longsuffering can mean several things, including trials and tribulations which Pastor Mike refers to as liabilities. God allows these liabilities in our lives to allow His purpose to be fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 11: 23-28; James 1: 2-4; Romans 5: 3-4; Psalm 40: 1-3; 2 Corinthians 4: 15-17; Ruth 1: 1-22; Ruth 4: 21-22 (NKJV)
