FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
LOVE
SEEKS THE HIGHEST GOOD FOR OTHERS
DEFINITION: 
Love is not based on emotions or feelings.  It is a decision to be committed to the well being of others without any conditions or circumstances.
 
 
EXEMPLIFIED IN JESUS: 
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."      John 3:16
 
Jesus said, "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.  Now remain in my love." John 15:9
 
Jesus said, "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.  You are my friends if you do what I command." John 15:12-14
 
OTHER SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: 
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.  Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us:  He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love:  not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." 1 John 4:7-12.
