FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
Love (Gr. Agape) - A divine love, an ardent, tender, self-sacrificial devotion to the well being of others.
Commentary: Jesus Christ displayed this kind of love when he went to the cross for us. He said, “Greater love hath no man that this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” John 15:13. This love was clearly exemplified in one of Jesus' final statements while hanging on the cross, brutally beaten and tortured by his adversaries. He said, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do,” Luke 23:34.
