The Fruit Bearing Life Part 1- Love

Key Verse

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God” 1 John 4:7.

Text — 1 John 4:7-12


The first and greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul and mind and then your neighbour as yourself. God is love. He so loved mankind that He gave His Son Jesus to die for us. The word “love” is being so commonly used and interpreted today that a lot of people do things that God hates all in the name of love.

A true or genuine love comes from a heart that is connected to Jesus. God’s love has the following characteristics: It is kind, does not envy, it’s not proud, suffers long, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in sin or iniquity, but rejoices in the truth. It gives and cares for neighbours, friends in school and church etc. Can you say you truly love? God’s desire is that you accept His love by turning away from all sins. Then go forth and share the love with others.
