During camp, our TAWG lessons covered the Fruit of the Spirit. But there were a few we didn’t get to. This week, we’re taking a look at the rest of the Fruit of the Spirit. We hope these posts give you some good “food” for thought. 🙂
Love is one of the most common words in our language. It’s an integral part of our culture. Everyone thinks they know what love is. And yet many of us go through life searching for it. But what does the Bible have to say about love? As you might assume…quite a bit.
Read Galatians 5:22
It’s no coincidence that the first fruit mentioned in this famous verse is love. In 1 John 4:8, the Bible says that “God is love.” To love is to follow after the Creator’s example. It is the first sign of a follower of Christ. Just take Jesus at his own words.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” – John 13:35
No biblical discussion about love would be complete without the passage known as “The Love Chapter.” Go read 1 Corinthians 13 and take some time to think about the Bible’s definition of love. Here are a few questions to ask yourself.
What does it mean to love someone else?
How did Jesus display love?
What are some incorrect ways we think about love?
Who is someone who has shown love to you?
Who is someone to whom you need to show love?
Come back tomorrow for the next TAWG lesson on the Fruit of the Spirit. We’re praying for you as you transition back to life at home. We pray that you will not forget what you learned at camp!
