fruit ~ LOVE

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love . . . (Gal. 5: 22)

The list of the fruit of the Spirit is a good contrast to the list of the works of the flesh.  A strategy I like to use with my students when learning vocabulary is to not only learn what the word “is” but also what the word “is not.”  In other words, do a study of synonyms and antonyms.  So naturally last Sunday when our group started to look the fruit in this same way, I was hooked!  Join me as I look at the gift in my box . . .

LOVE – Greek AGAPE meaning “unconditional love that is self-sacrificing, accepting of others.”   

The list of antonyms is short: hate 

HE loves me, the unlovable and unlovely.  Not because I deserve it —– Because HE IS LOVE.

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
