No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is truly in our hearts. God has given us his Spirit. That is how we know that we are one with him, just as he is one with us. God sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. We saw his Son and are now telling others about him. God stays one with everyone who openly says that Jesus is the Son of God. That's how we stay one with God and are sure that God loves us. God is love. If we keep on loving others, we will stay one in our hearts with God, and he will stay one with us.
1 John 4 : 12-16
Some people have mistakenly assumed that the “gifts of the Spirit” are the most important evidence that someone is a true follower of Jesus. The real evidence that the Holy Spirit is living in you is the “Fruit of the Spirit.” It starts to look and smell like a small beautiful flower and then blossoms and is transformed into a gorgeous, tasty and nourishing fruit!
The fruit hanging on your branches tells the world that you are a Jesus follower!
Even a magician can appear to do miracles, but real love for your brothers and sisters cannot be successfully imitated!
So, our job as a follower of Jesus is to love God and each other and tell everybody we know about the Savior! The love that we have for each other is the mark that proves that we really do belong to Jesus!
“Lord Jesus, help me today to love You more and to love Your other followers! May Your Holy and Righteous Name be praised now and forever. Amen.”
