The 9 fruit of the Spirit is all encapsulated in love. It takes God to express agape love because God is love. The characteristics of love in 1 Cor. 13:4-8 shows that it takes our yieldedness to the Holy Spirit to truly love and forgive others. This is the excellent way. 1 Cor. 12:31, 1 John 4:18
May the Lord help us as we press on to be like Jesus. Amen!
