These things command and teach. Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 1 Timothy 4:11-16. So, what Nuggets of The Gold Standard should we teach? But The Fruit Of The Spirit Is Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance: AGAINST SUCH THERE IS NO LAW.  Galatians 5:22-23. (And also). But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to EVERY MAN to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the Word Of Wisdom... Word Of Knowledge... Faith... Gifts Of Healing...  Working Of Miracles... Prophecy... Discerning Of Spirits... Divers Kinds Of Tongues... Interpretation Of Tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, DIVIDING to every man severally AS HE WILL. 1 Corinthians12:7-11. (Now it REALLY gets GOoD). If you Have Christ, you Have the Holy Spirit, and He WILL Grow ALL the Fruits, in your Life. Plus, ALL The Gifts, WILL be with you like Tools in a Tool Belt, to use it, or them, as needed, then put them, it, back in the tool belt, until needed again. Always at the ready, in season, and out of season. Wherefore take unto you THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, that ye may be able to WITHSTAND in the evil day, and having done all, TO STAND. Ephesians 6:13. (Now it Really REALLY gets GOoD). ALL THIS, is only the FOUNDATION in Christ to Grow you into the Perfection of the Fullness of CHRISTLIKENESS, as a Vessel suitable for His Purposes, that you may, Be Blessed.
