Apostle Grace Lubega
Acts 24:16 (KJV); And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and [toward] men.
The anointing of the Spirit makes a great difference in the life of any believer.
It heals, delivers, empowers, distinguishes, and transforms. However, the anointing alone is not enough.
I have served God long enough to see the fate of many anointed men who did not allow God to cultivate godly character in them.
These men healed the sick, made the lame walk, gave sight to the blind but failed in their interpersonal relationships, and lost the people closest to them because they were lacking in character.
To be anointed does not mean you should not be kind, empathetic, virtuous, and sensitive. To be anointed does not mean you no longer listen to anyone else or that you are above rebuke.
The unavoidable truth about an anointed man without character is that he will, either by accident or design, offend both God and man.
The Spirit of God is kind, gentle, humble, virtuous, and exceeding in compassion. The anointed must be a reflection of His character.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The Spirit of God is kind, gentle, humble, virtuous, and exceeding in compassion. The anointed must be a reflection of His character.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the knowledge of things that are both ethical and divine. I am not only anointed but You mould a great character in me that attracts and ministers to many beyond mere words, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
