SUNDAY WEEKLY CHALLENGE: LOVE

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

LOVE

The fruit of the Spirit begins with love.  There are nine graces spoken of, and of these nine Paul puts love at the head of the list; love is the first thing, the first in that precious cluster of fruit.  Someone has said that all the other eight can be put in terms of love.

Joy is love exulting;

Peace is love in repose;

Longsuffering is love on trial;

Gentleness is love in society;

Goodness is love in action;

Faith is love on the battlefield;

Meekness is love at school;

And Temperance is love in training.

So it is love all the way; love at the top, love at the bottom, and all the way along down this list of graces.  If we only just brought forth the fruit of the Spirit what a world we would have!  Men would have no desire to do evil.

–Dwight L. Moody
