fruit from the ♥...

often times i'm drawn back to Galatians 6 (which honestly should be everyday, cause i'm seriously lacking in fruit of the spiritual kind) and i'm always amazed at how our Heavenly Father so gently put these qualities in His Word for us to study and apply...think on these things with me guys...

Galatians 5:22~23
But the fruit of the Spirit is...
 Love A feeling of strong attachment induced 
by that which delights or commands admiration; 
preeminent kindness or devotion to another; affection; tenderness...
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, 
and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1John 4:10
 Joy gladness; exhilaration of spirits; delight.
And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation. Psalm 35:9

Peace A state of quiet or tranquility; 
freedom from disturbance or agitation; calm; repose
Great peace have they which love thy law. Psalm 119:165

Longsuffering patient endurance of pain or unhappiness.
But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, 
and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. Psalm 86:15

Gentleness softness of manner, mildness.
Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great. Psalm 18:35

Goodness excellence; virtue; kindness; benevolence.
Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee. 
Psalm 31:19
Faith belief (plain and simple)
If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed...
nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20
Meekness A calm temper of mind, not easily provoked.
With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love. Ephesians 4:2
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, 
kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering. 
Colossians 3:12
 Temperance moderation, patience; calmness.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 2 Peter 1:5-7

....against such there is no law. 
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.  
let us all have the desire to walk in the Spirit Lord, give us a pure heart
