Galatians 5:22 The Fruit Is Love

Galatians 5:22

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

The word Love is in the Bible I use 479 times, and the first time the word love is written in scripture is from Genesis 22:2, where the Lord asks Abraham to sacrifice his son he loved  Isaac but isn’t that what love is sacrifice? When I got old enough to notice, some of the girls in my class were very pretty, so I wrote a little letter to her, and I said, I like you, will you be my girlfriend, check yes or no, and she replied with a check-in yes. As a boyfriend, we really didn’t do anything but eat with each other at lunch and that is about it. The older I got, getting the attention of a pretty girl, took a little more effort, when I was in junior high, I saw a beautiful blonde name, Belinda Inman. I really want her attention and love, so I told my father her name, bought a gift, and brought it to school. My father loved me like I love Belinda, so at recess the next day, I was very surprised to see Belinda carrying a teddy bear that was as big as her, she came to me and said thanks and I was very sweet but she already had a boyfriend, but thanks for anyway. God made His creation, to have a desire to love and to be loved, it is how He made the population of the earth grows. 

Genesis 1:21 And God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind; and God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”-1:28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

The animal kingdom does a natural thing to get attention, male bird has more attractive feathers, like the bright red cardinal or the bright feathers of the peacock. Some animals use the sense of smell to get the attention of the opposite sex to mate, the smell doesn’t work very well unwater so whales make nice to each other, many call it whale songs.   The whale songs can be heard from a great distance all over the ocean, so the need to give love and receive love is a great desire for the animal kingdom as well. The Holy Spirit gives the fruit of love to God’s people, to give attention to others and let them know they are special and God loves them and we love them also. Many people might say, that easy to love, the emotion of love is natural and yes it is, Even in a world of sin, we all love our parents, siblings other families, and friends, but the fruit of the Holy Spirt helps me and you love our enemies, that even means those who want to harm and hurt us.

Matthew 5:46  For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Even the tax collectors, do they not do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Even the Gentiles, do they not do the same? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

The fruits of Spirit are like spiritual gifts, like speaking tongues, teaching, and prophecy, but the fruit of love, when practicing in a godly way, gets the attention of others and they want to learn about God and His love and the people of His church love and this is how the church is fruitful and multiplies. This is how the kingdom of God grows, and this is how heaven fills with a spiritually loving family of God. When a  man or woman does a crazy, silly thing to get attention and it sometimes works and they have a loving relationship that is full of holy matrimony. If you don’t think this kind of love doesn’t work, this is how God, shows love to me and you, He sent His Son, to die for me and you, and our relationship with God, is hateful, He didn’t hate us but hated Him. Buy the love of Jesus, He dies and paid the penalty of sin He didn’t do, He didn’t disobey His Father, but we did. God loved us when we didn’t love Him, so when the love of spirit really moves me and you, it is very easy, to love all people, even those who hate you and I. God bless you, Jesus the God of loves you and so do I, Samuel J Head the loving bondservant of Christ. 

Romans 5:5  and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will hardly die for a righteous person; though perhaps for the good person someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
