The first fruit of the Spirit is love.
But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control; and here there is no conflict with Jewish laws. – Gal 5:22-23 [TLB]
What is love?
As Christians, we are guided by what the bible says. So let’s find out what the bible says about love.
My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love — so you can’t know him if you don’t love. – 1 John 4:7-8
The scripture above tells us that love comes from God. Love doesn’t come from the movies, from friends, from family members, but from God.
Does that mean my family members cannot show me love? The answer is right there.
The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love — so you can’t know him if you don’t love. – 1 John 4:8
Before you can show love to anybody, you have to have a relationship with Love Himself. You have to know God and who He is.
So when you see someone acting in an awkward manner, or does not display attributes of a believer, rather than write him or her off, extend an arm of fellowship to such a person. Tell him or her about love. Invite such a person to Christ and see the wonders that will become of him/her in the nearest future.
I pray God will help you to show love everywhere you find yourself, Amen.
Lord, teach me how to be a love being.
Show love to all around you
I am a person of love, just like my God
