Love as a Fruit of the Spirit

LOVE AS A FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

This post is on love as a fruit of the Spirit. We could say that all other fruits of the Spirits are products of love – directly or by implication.

Galatians 5:22-23

5:22

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

5:23

Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Love is one of the fruit of the spirit that a believer is expected to have. After salvation experience and the baptism of the Holy Ghost, a believer is now a new creature that has been made whole by the blood of the lamb.

He is no longer under the bondage of the old man and his works which is the flesh and the fruits of the flesh, he is no longer under the bondage of sin for whom the Son has set free is free indeed (John 8:36).

The works of the flesh which are stated in Galatians 5:19-21  cannot be produced again in the life of the believer because those who lives as their human nature tells them to, have their mind controlled by the human nature wants but those who lives as the Spirit tell them to, have their mind controlled by the Spirit(Roman 8:5).

The Spirit of the Lord is now the one in control and this Spirit does not make us slave and cause us to be afraid; instead, the Spirit makes us God’s children.
