The Fruit of the Spirit is…Love (Part 1)

hqdefaultWhen you accepted Jesus Christ as the Savior of your soul you were given His Spirit to reside in you to assist you in your earthly tenure and as a down payment of eternal things.  As you yield yourself to the Spirit (He goes first in your thinking, words, and deeds), you will exhibit characteristics of the Spirit the Bible calls ‘fruit’.  This fruit comes in 9 varieties:

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control.”

Galatians 5:22

  1. I say “Amen” to the prayer.
    I also pray Ephesians 3:17-19 for us all… that we be rooted and grounded in God’s love daily in Jesus Name.

  2. We know how much we love and pray for our children! How much greater is God’s love for us. Holy Spirit, help me KNOW this that it becomes my very truth at all times.

  3. Thank You, Lord, for Your love. It is amazing that He equips us with His love to reveal Himself to others through us. Lord, that I would get out of Your way that Your love would shine through.
    He has been dealing with me on the issue of demonstrating His love, setting aside pride when I have been wronged and choosing love. It’s hard to choose to love over being right sometimes, ok often times. BUT by His grace at work in me I will choose to LOVE over all other alternatives. Help me Jesus, because I know obedience in this area is crucial.
