Genuine holiness is found in loving the God who first loved us. When we focus on the love of God in Jesus Christ, it is impossible for us not to be filled with the fruits of His spirit.

The Bible says, “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11 (NIV)

Our Master gives us this order, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12

Those who love Jesus will have the love of God poured into their hearts through the Holy Spirit: “And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5

Let us be full of love for God and our fellow human beings.
