First comes LOVE ~
Spirit Fruit reflects Godly character and first comes Love. LOVE is the greatest quality.
God is Love. Love does not merely describe God. Love is God ~ and God is Love
Scripture describes for us Love’s meaning in 1 Corinthians 13:1-13.
“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” (4-8)
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (Corinthians13:13)
1 John 4: 7-21 tells us that
God is Love
Love is from God
God loves us
We are to love one another
Whoever loves is born of God, and knows God, and God knows him
God perfects us with his Love
There is no fear in Love
“Pursue Love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts…” (1 Corinthians 14:1)
Begin with Love….
