The fruit of the spirit is "Love"

Gal. 5:22

Introduction.

Today I want to begin with the fruit of Love as we look deep into the list of the fruit, and "Love" is at the beginng

Gal 5:22 -23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Now lets take a sharper look at the word Fruit.

In the qreek is "Karpos" it means "Work, Act, ans deed

I like to refering to us in this study as a fruit Tree, with the question

What is the "Attubutes" of a Fruit Tree?

#1 It bears fruit, Apples, Oranges, ect.

#2 It does it naturely

Any body ever seen a apple tree bear "Oranges"? or a Plum Tree gives apples?

Well so it is with the christian, We will bear what ever "Fruit" that is in our Life. and it will flow "naturely" just like a tree.

Lets take a closer look.

Now lets consider the "First" Fruit Love.

How will you know that you are Produceing Love? good question

Lets look at the word Love in the greek.

The greek has 2 words #1 Fileoo and it means The Love of Impulse, Affection and feeling,

#2 Agapaoo and it means The Love of esteem.

A example in John 21:15 and 17

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

John 21:17

He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Love is the Painting on the canvas behind all the other’s on the list.

LETS TAKE A LOOK. AT THE LIST

Love is "self giving"

Love is totally "selfless"

Love "delights" in giving

Love "continues" to give.

Love "determes" to do whatever is best for others.

Love "Gives" when it gets nothing.

Love "doeset" think of getting something back.

Love is the "Priority" commandment.

Matt,22 :36-40

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the

SO WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM ALL THIS?

#1 LOVE IS THE "PREFECT" GIFT

1 cor 13:1-4

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
