For I serve you so that you can serve others.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly.

May God reflect his love on us, we love to give, to receive and to Love… We are ordained_to_bear fruits!
if you are finding it hard to love or receive love, pray this with me…
Father Lord, thank you!
Thank you for coming for me, for dying for me, thank you for making me whole in you. Lord Jesus today help me to love with open arms like you do, help me to dwell and rest in your love, help me to embrace people and welcome with love, help me to receive and give in love…. Breath on me Lord, the breath of love let in burn in my bones and flame in my heart, love though me in Jesus name, Amen.
I am glad to announce to you that the lord has just poured out the spirit of love in you, may every dimension of your life reflect the love of God.
I love you😘😘😘
