The fruit of the Spirit

Memory verse (Rom5: 5): " Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us ".

We can’t imitate God’s love by trying to do all that Christ did and think that is God’s love. We can do all the good things just because we are taught that way. The Holy Spirit who lives in us pours out God’s love into our hearts. People in the world are doing all kinds of things for all kinds of motives other than love. The scripture teaches that people can prophesy, speak in tongues, do miracles, without the love of God. People can give all what they have yet not because of God’s love. Others can give their own bodies to be burnt yet not motivated by God’s love.

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, (1Cor13:4-7)

God’s love makes you kind to people, God’s love makes you bear with people who are difficult to relate with, to live with, to work with, the people who are slow to learn, the people who are unthankful. God’s love makes celebrate other people’s success. God’s love makes you lift up others. God’s love is not puffed up but it makes you humble. God’s love can’t allow you to behave rudely but it makes you kind to all people. God’s love doesn’t make you seek your own interest but it makes you seek the good of others ie God’s love does not make you selfish but makes you self-less. God’s love makes you a person who is not easily provoked, people will say all they can, they try to do all wrong things to you, they will deny every right that is due to you but you’ll continue to love them like God. God’s love will make you never to think evil about other people, even those who do evil to you, you’ll cry to God so he has mercy on them and never reward them according to the way they hurt you. You’ll never desire any evil to befall any man even your worst enemies. God’s love makes you merciful to those who do evil to you. May we cry out for the outpouring of God’s love in our lives? We need a divine baptism in God’s love (Eph3: 16-17). God’s love will make a different man or woman and will cause to make the difference the world is longing for. God has managed to turn millions and millions to himself by love. Love is the only mightiest spiritual weapon we have to change the whole world. Where all things have failed, God’s love will succeed.
