Welcome to Dailey Family Ministries Web Page.
Welcome to Dailey Family Ministries. We hope you will find something on this site that will encourage and uplift you.
My husband, Dave, went home to be with the Lord August 7, 2014. It is my purpose to keep his ministry alive by keeping this website going and posting more of his sermons. Feel free to use any sermon on this site.
We are so thankful for Toni Marie Engle Wolfe who set up this website for us. If it wasn't for her this would not have been done. We praise God for you and your family, Toni.
Check out her page on this site & also she has her own website: toniwolfeministries.com
This month, March, will usher in the first day of Spring. I love this time of year. Everything that lay seemingly dead in the ground will be coming up and blooming and producing fruit.
That reminds me of us when we were sinners. When we first came to Jesus we were dead in trespasses and sin producing fruit unto death.
Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Ga 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Ga 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Romans 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
But when we turn our hearts and lives over to Jesus we drop that shell of the old man and become new creatures in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). As we read the Word and grow spiritually we start to produce fruit.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Ga 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Romans 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Dave gave the example of a bean coming up out of the ground. When it first starts coming up the old bean hull is still hooked to the new plant. But as it gets nourishment from the sun and rain it sheds that old shell.
As we grow in the Lord and feed on His Word we will shed our old man and his deeds. We start taking on the characteristics of the Vine we are attached to.
Just as we have to keep weeds out of our natural garden, we must keep spiritual weeds out of our hearts and minds. The cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the Word, and we become unfruitful (Matthew 13:22). We must keep our spirit man fed on the Word of God, which is our spiritual weed killer.
2 Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
2pe 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
2pe 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
2pe 1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2pe 1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
2pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.
Here we have the recipe to be a fruitful and steadfast child of God.
I want to close with the words Paul.
Colossians 1:9 I desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
Col 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Col 1:11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.
If you don't know Jesus as your personal Savior, please accept the free gift of salvation He offers. Get rooted and grounded in His Word. You will experience the fruit of love, joy, and peace like you have never known.
Till next month, God bless you.
