LOVE

Recently, I did a quick comparison between 1 Corinthians 13 (the Love Chapter) and Galatians 5 (the Fruit of the Spirit). 'Love' has been on my mind lately...

VERY WELL SAID, my dear friend, VERY WELL SAID!

We all desire happiness, but we don't realize that happiness is possibly only in loving others!

Without love, there is no joy, no peace, no patience, no love, joy, no kindness, no goodness, no faithfulness, no gentleness and no self-control. Without love, there is no fruit of the Spirit.

“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions. - Matthew 7:14-20 NLT

Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” - John 13:35 NLT

Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. - John 15:4-5 NLT
