Greetings in love fellow sojourners! Last week we looked at the fruit of the Spirit demonstrated through love. Has anyone taken steps to improve or learn how to draw God’s love from the Spirit in us (taken from Part 1)? That love indeed is sourced from a well that never runs dry! That is a vital truth. Love (agape) is God’s character infused in us by His Spirit. It is not our failures and short-comings but His perfect endurance that overrides our failures and short-comings enabling us to love His way!
