FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT …

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

Longsuffering in all our trials,

When they last for a long long while,

For the fruit of the Spirit is love.

***

In God’s strength we go along,

Hear in the night a sweet sweet song,

For the fruit of the Spirit is love.

***

Desiring to shield from harm,

We keep on sounding the alarm,

For the fruit of the Spirit is love.

***

Often so misunderstood,

We keep on striving for the good,

For the fruit of the Spirit is love.

***

Christ indeed is our best friend,

Love that endures until the end,

For the fruit of the Spirit is love.

***

Speaking truth, the hour is late,

Time is short and the need is great,

For the fruit of the Spirit is love.

    1 John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

    1 John 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

    1 John 4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

    1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

    1 John 4:21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
