Secret Weapons

Beth Jones

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23, NIV

We all know the fruits of the Spirit, right? Love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control! But, did you know, these are our secret weapons? They are! 

When the world around you is mad, intimidating, unhappy, stressed, suspicious, critical, doubt-filled, harsh and out-of-control, you have secret weapons! When you live by the fruits of the Spirit, people around you will be amazed. They will wonder:

How can you be so loving and kind towards your neighbor who seeks to hurt and annoy you? Why are you so full of joy and peace when gas prices are up and Wall Street is down? How can you can be so patient and faithful when you work for an unfair employer? Why do you have so much self-control to stay composed when facing a crisis, injustice or frustration?

Here’s an amazing story about the power of these secret weapons and the Greater One Who lives in us! 

"I never considered myself leaving Islam for anything else, yet at this point I was sure that it wasn't leading me to God…I started doing drugs, and not talking about God at all. Then I met a Christian — who didn't know much of the Christian theology — but who was full of love to others, whatever and whoever they were. One of his friends said about him that he must be killed because he was Christian and didn't pay "Jizyah" (tax levied on Christians and Jews in an Islamic state, according to the Qur'an). Yet, this didn't stop him from loving this man or dealing with him professionally…

Initially, I didn't know he was Christian and when I found out, I was surprised; everything I had learned all my life about Christians from my reading of Islamic writings and Muhammad's opinion about them put them down very much. I asked this friend if I could have a copy of the Bible…I prayed to Him [God] and He was here; for the first time in my life I felt that God was here, and to say it was a very strange feeling for me would be an understatement. I was so happy, so sad. Happy to know He is here and sad for what I had missed. It felt very peaceful and I wanted this feeling to last for good. I still remember this very first time I prayed; I ran out of the room because for the first time in my life I felt the Presence of God...

I have been following Him since then. He changed all my life. I went off drugs; I became a whole new person…My father delivered me to the Security Forces and they arrested me and put me in prison for converting out of Islam. I had a very bad time there, as they tortured me to force me to return to Islam. They used electric shocks, beatings, and hanging me from my wrists all night. After a few weeks of this I was put in solitary confinement for almost a year. But I couldn't deny the One that gave me life. Now I am out of jail and I have left my home country as I am still wanted there for apostasy from Islam. I am still walking with Jesus, and I love Him because He loved me first and put Himself on the cross for me...And as a result I decided to spend my life telling people about His great love to us."


Love, joy, peace…and all the fruit of God's Spirit are powerful weapons! May we be "armed and dangerous" today.

Say This: "Father, thank You that Your love has been poured out in my heart and all the fruit of the Spirit is within me. Help me to yield to these secret weapons so that others are touched by You when they see and experience the love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in my life. Help me to be 'armed and dangerous' today. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
