Love is one of the
"fruits of the Holy Spirit."
First, we receive God's love though the Holy
Spirit and then we are able to give that love to
others. God's love is perfect.
Dwell in me and I will dwell in you (Live in me,
and I will live in you.) Just as no branch can
bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being
vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear
fruit unless you abide in Me.

Love is like pure gold. It
does not bend, tarnish, or become fragile.

You are able to love perfectly
only through me. If you love without abiding
in me, your love will be soulish--full of
anxiety, insecurity, instability and could produce
unnecessary suffering in your life.
Abide now in Me. Read and
meditate on my Word. Pray with understanding
and in the Holy Spirit. You will be trained
to abide in Me though the revelation teaching of
the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit fruit of
love will be flowing out of your inner being.
And now abide faith, hope love, these three; but
the greatest of these is love.
