1 The Fruits of the Spirit on Wed Jul 14, 2010 8:27 pm


Galatians 5:22-23 "... the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance..."

This topic can be an interesting one if we can really dig deep within ourselves to understand the Word of God. There are 9 fruits (fruitage as some may say) of the spririt. Below is the list and we will study them one by one. Please make comments for each one before we go to a different one. This will allow us to learn and understand them well. Scripture for the list of the 9 fruits are found in Galatians 5:22-23. There will be cross-referernce verses as well to study. For this topic we will generally quote from the KJV of the Bible.










We will begin with number one------LOVE

To reply to the word LOVE, find as many scriptures about LOVE and post a couple here. The first verse that comes to mind should be John 3:16. Rather than it would be me to quote it, I will give someone else that chance. My second choice would be: 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

When we have love one for another we find our lives are much easier to live. Everyday events seem to take on a different aspect and we soon find we can get along much better with others if we have love in our hearts.

More about LOVE

Love is a four letter word. Not as is generally accepted as a four letter word in today’s society but, none the less, the word only contains four letters. So short but so profound. If asked, how would you describe “love?” Affection is one related word that first of all comes to mind. Affection for someone close. A loved one could cause tears of sadness or tears of joy. One feels for someone that one loves.

The strong emotional attachment to one of the opposite sex is a normal progression between two equally attracted people. Because of the genetic makeup I perceive that the female gender are more able to discuss their feelings and are more open about the way that they feel. The expressions of love between two people are wonderful emotions to experience.

It is a marvellous thing when a child is produced through a strong emotional bonding. The parents would, most certainly, love the production of the love union but not in the same way as they love each other. A bonding of parent and child is so strong as to elicit a self sacrificing attachment. What parent, if the situation arose, would not forfeit life to save their child? So strong is the bond of love.
The love one feels towards the child is different to the love that instigated the conception of the child. This again though is a self sacrificing love. When one is hurt either physically or emotionally ones mate is so hurt.

There is another form of love which is spoken of in scripture. The principle of “loving” ones enemies is a very different proposition. A love born from principle. One can, for instance, “love” righteousness. Love of fellowman can elicit reaction when disaster strikes in another part of the globe. This is love but no affection is attached to that love. These feelings are altogether different from the feelings of love of mate and child.

All three forms of love are mentioned in scripture and, surely, deserve a little research in that “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son.” ( John 3:16 )

So Jacob worked seven years to pay for Rachel. But his love for her was so strong that it seemed to him but a few days

I love the story of Leah.I used to weep when reading it as I felt so bad for Leah,the unloved by her husband.But realized that she was deeply loved by God.
But it had to be so hard for her to be 2nd choice to her husband.How her Father humiliated her and the scene that next morning had to be so horrifying.
And the humiliation when Jacob put her to the front when going to meet Esau.
But then I followed the naming of her children..and how she too came to know how deeply God loved her.You can see her awakening to this here.Gen.30:33 & Gen.30:35
That God loves us should be enough for any woman,but in the flesh it can be terribly painful.
Her story will always have a special place in my heart,I hope to meet her in Heaven one day.
