This article will serve as a follow up to our article titled, The 9 Fruits of the Holy Spirit. In that article, I gave you the verse from Galatians where the Lord is telling us there are 9 specific fruits that He can transmit up into our personalities through His Holy Spirit. In this verse from Galatians, the very first quality that is listed as one of the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit is the quality of love — and I do not think this was by accident! As you will see in the Scripture verses I will list below, there is no doubt in my mind that the quality of love is the 1 quality that God would like to get worked into our souls and personalities.
Even nonbelievers, atheists, and agnostics can see the power of love and how it has the ability to change people and their lives when it is properly handled and walked out. Hollywood has made tons of movies just on the power of love — especially the special love that can occur between a man and woman in a romantic relationship.
Even hard, tough, grown men can be brought to tears when watching a real well made movie made about the power of love.
Then when you read and study the Bible — you see the major emphasis God the Father is placing on it when He tells us that He wants us to love Him, love ourselves, and to love one another. So if the quality of love is recognized by all peoples and all nations, then why is it that throughout the course of human history there has been so many wars, so much hatred, so much crime, and so much inhumanity done to our fellow man? If everyone knows what love is, then how could so many people throughout the course of our human history commit the evil and atrocious acts they have committed?
Even in our present day and age people still have The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light learned from the past, as there is just as much hatred and evil operating in this world today as there has ever been. The Bible even tells us that the love of many will grow cold in the latter days, which means things are going to actually go from bad to worst in the coming years. Why do so many people have to rob, kill, plunder, and steal from one another?
As Christians, we all know that part of the answer as to why men cannot love one another in the way that God would really like from us is due to the fallen sin natures that we have all been born into this world with as a result of the curse of Adam and Eve. The Bible tells us that every single one of us has been born into this world in sin and iniquity.
This is why Jesus had to come to die for all of us — because we have all sinned and have fallen way short of the glory of our God. However, even born-again believers have problems in being able to walk in love to the degree that God would really like in our everyday lives. We all know that God is expecting us to be able to walk in His love If You Only Have One Wish - The Weatherman - Cruisin Alaska but we still have problems in being able to love God, our families, our friends, and even own selves to the degree and intensity that He would really like from all of us.
We read in the Bible about all of the verses that God wants us to walk very strongly in this quality, but we still seem to fall way short of being able to actually do it in our real lives.
If we all have the Holy Spirit living and operating on the inside of us, then why is it that we cannot seem to draw more of His love up into our personalities so that we can all walk with more of this quality operating in our lives? Too many Christians are trying to walk in the quality of love operating out of their own strength, out of their own emotions, and out of their own flesh. Granted, God the Father wants us to do the best we can to try and put this quality The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light the core of our personalities.
But our best is not going to be good enough in this area to get the job done with the way God would really like. The reason for this is that we have all been born with these fallen, imperfect, and Here Comes My Baby - Various - The Spirit Of The 60s: 1967 The Hits Dont Stop natures. This means that we are not capable of walking in perfect love, no matter how hard we may try in our own natural strength.
So what is the answer if we are not capable of walking in perfect love in the way that our Lord would really like for us to be able to do?
And the only way that you can get the Holy Spirit to release His love into you as one of His 9 fruits is that you have to be willing to enter into a true sanctification process with the Lord where He can then begin to start the process of transforming you into the express image of His Son Jesus Christ.
It is only when the very love of God Himself starts to flow into your personality can you even begin to love God, love yourself, and love other people to the degree and intensity that He would really like from you. Once the Holy Spirit begins this sanctification process in your life — your job will be to learn how to live, walk, Bs & Hs - Geto Boys - Da Good Da Bad & Da Ugly operate in the divine qualities and attributes He will start to transmit into your personality.
Actually, once the Holy Spirit starts to transmit and impart His divine love into you, it will then become much easier for you to be able to love others in the way God wants you to be able to love them. It is only when the Holy Spirit starts to release His love into your personality as one of His 9 fruits can you truly begin to love God, love yourself, and love other people in the way God intended.
Trying to love others with what limited imperfect love you Happy Boy - The Bolshoi - A Way: Best Of The Bolshoi already have operating in you will never get the job done — either to your own satisfaction or to the satisfaction of God Himself.
This is why Jesus has told us that without Him we can do nothing, especially in the area of being able to get properly sanctified in Him. In this article, I will give you some of the best verses from Scripture on the quality of love, and why God the Father is placing such a strong emphasis that we learn how to walk in it in our personal relationship with Him, with ourselves, and with the other people in our lives. God the Father is really raising the bar on this one specific quality as you will be able to see The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light the way that He has worded some of these verses.
He is making some extreme and radical statements with what He is expecting from all of us with just this one quality. When you first read what these verses are telling us to do in reference to this particular quality, you will really be able to feel and sense your own shortcomings in this area. But again, realize this is where the Holy Spirit will be coming in big time. Just realize that God knows you cannot reach the level that He is really looking for — and that it will only be possible for you to reach this level only if the love of the Holy Spirit Himself is operating and flowing through you.
When you really study and meditate on the verses I will list below, you can sum all of them up in one simple statement. God is looking for you to be able to love in 6 different areas — all with the love of the Holy Spirit being available to you to help you out in The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light one of these areas.
Bottom line — God will want you to love right across the board — from loving Him down to being able to love the worst of your enemies. The first 4 areas are much easier to learn how to do than the last two areas — especially the last one in being able to love your enemies and those who will try and hurt you in this life.
Loving most of your family and friends is very easy because of the strong natural bonds that we have already established with them. But learning how to love some of your neighbors who you have no real special bond with, or complete total strangers will be much harder for you to do, especially with the way that our world has become with so many more people keeping to themselves and being afraid to trust anyone.
However, this can be done with the help of LAX - Hot Snakes - Suicide Invoice Holy Spirit.
Once you start to feel the love of God Himself for some of these people, it will then become much easier for you to befriend some of these people and help them out when the need may arise. When you study what He did as He was walking on our earth, He was always stopping and talking to people, along with helping, teaching, saving, healing and delivering some of these people when The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light need would arise. He was always there to meet their needs, especially their spiritual needs.
Though we will never be able to love in the perfect way that Jesus can since none of us will ever become the fourth person of the Holy Trinity — we can still try to do the best we can in our dealings and relationships Been A Son - Nirvana - Sheep other people.
Now I will give you some of the best and most profound verses from the Bible on the quality of love, how powerful of a thing it really is, and exactly what God the Father is looking for from each one of us in this area.
I will break these Scripture verses down under their appropriate captions so you can fully grasp the revelation the Lord is trying to give you in this area. These first two verses really set the stage on how high God is really ranking the quality of love. As you will see with the way these two verses are being worded, God the Father is placing the quality of love as 1 in the entire scheme of things. And then it ends stating that love is the greatest of these three virtues — including being greater than faith itself.
Just stop and think for a minute what God is trying to tell us with just this one statement in that having the love of God operating and flowing through us is even better and greater than having higher levels of faith in Him.
Without faith in God — we cannot connect to Him. Without faith in God — there can be no miracles. Faith is our lifeline to the Lord. Without faith in God, we would be spiritually dead in the Lord.
So why would God say the quality of love is even greater than our lifeline to Him, which is our faith? I believe God is trying to tell us something very important with this statement, and the apostle Paul perfectly captures what that something is in the second verse I will list below.
Paul makes one of the most classic statements ever made on the importance of love and how this quality fits into the big picture as far as God is concerned.
But if you do not have the love of God operating in your life, then all of this gifting, power, knowledge, and works in The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light Lord will all be for nothing! I repeat — all for nothing! It will have all been for naught when you have to end up giving a full account of yourself to the Lord on your day of judgment with Him. Bottom line — all of your accomplishments in the Lord, and all of the good fruit you may have produced Dress You Up - Madonna - Like A Virgin the Lord in this lifetime will mean absolutely nothing to Him if you did not walk all of this out in the spirit of love.
This is why each and every Christian should make it their 1 goal and priority in this life to learn how to walk in the love of God for their lives. Nothing will touch other people more deeply than having the love of God shining through you and your life.
With the quality of love being an universal language that everyone can understand and witness to — this quality, more than any other quality, will be the main one that can lead nonbelievers to salvation in the Lord, and lead other believers into a deeper walk with God. I do not think it is a coincidence that the quality of love is listed as the very first fruit of the Holy Spirit in the Tennessee Blues - Flaky Pastry - Ingredients from Galatians on the 9 fruits of the The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light Spirit.
Here are the first two profound verses that will show us how important the quality of love really is in the big picture. This last verse from Paul perfectly puts the quality of love in proper perspective for all of our lives, in that everything we do for the Lord has to be done in love. The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light put — God wants everything that we do for Him in this life to be done in love.
We simply have to learn how to walk with His love operating in our lives. There is no other way to live this life but walking it out in the love of God towards Him, towards ourselves, and towards one another. In my article on the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit, I gave you the definition on love from some of the different Bible Dictionaries and Commentaries.
For the sake of this article, I am going to go ahead and restate these definitions, and then add several more verses from Scripture on what some of the qualities that are in true The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light from a pure heart. Here are some of the definitions on love from some of the different Bible Dictionaries and Commentaries:. This last verse from Paul is a real mouthful. True love will always be kind.
True love will never flaunt itself for attention. True love will never be jealous of others and their accomplishments. True love will always be thinking of others and their welfare. True love will never rejoice or wallow in evil and sin. The first verse from John states that there is no fear in love. Those who are trying to love you by trying to rule over you in fear are not truly loving you in the way God has intended.
This is not true love — this is pure evil! The above verse from John says Hard Headed Woman - Elvis Presley - The All Time Greatest Hits perfect love will cast out all fear. If these men truly loved their wives, they would not be physically or verbally abusing and violating them in the ways they have been.
These kind of men are an abomination to the Lord — and what they call love, The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light calls pure evil. The last verse from Paul says that true love will never think of evil, much less ever do evil to another — and that it will not seek its own, which means it will never attempt to love another person for their own personal gain, profit, The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light ego.
As a result of all the contamination that is in this fallen world, many people have lost the ability to truly love other people in the pure way that God has intended. This is why all Christians need the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit started in their lives — so God can begin to get them cleaned The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light in their thinking and in the way they act towards others.
Now that we know that love Enter Sandman - Metallica - Metallica the greatest of all the virtues and qualities, and that God wants all of us to learn how to walk in His love — exactly where is the love to be aimed at?
God wants to establish a one-on-on, intimate, personal relationship with each one of us — and in this personal relationship God will want you to truly learn how to love Him from your heart and from your soul. These next set of verses are all very intense in the way they are being worded. God is using maximum intense wording in the way that He is expressing Himself on this issue. In the first verse I will show you, Jesus is telling everyone that The Power Of Love - Q-Tex - Into The Light greatest of all The Last March - Đorđe Balašević - Jedan Od Onih Života. commandments of God the Father is that we learn how to love God with all of our mind, with all of our soul, and with all of our heart.
