Fruit of the Spirit – Love

When a person is cleansed by the blood of Christ, fellowship with God begins, and the Holy Spirit comes and indwells every believer. It is the presence of the Holy Spirit in the heart that produces holiness in our lives. Here, God is showing what sweet pleasing fruit really is in His sight, not our ministry primarily but our heart attitude and character, deep in the hidden part of man – love, joy, peace, and so on. Love is the chief of all the virtues. God is love, and desires more than anything that we learn to walk in love for him and others. If we learn to love, we will automatically fulfill the Law in all in its commands, even though we are not under the Law. What a simple yet profound life the Lord wants us to live. Praise the Lord.

Galatians 5:22-23 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
