What does the Bible say about the fruits of the Spirit?
The peace of Christ in me gives me a gentle and calm mind.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all minds, will keep your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus!
Because striving for the flesh is death, striving for the spirit is life and peace.
And the work of justice will be peace, and the fruitfulness of justice will be peace and security forever.
With the many worries in my heart, your consolations refreshed my soul.
Come to me all you who are laborious and laden, I want to refresh you! Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble from the heart; you will find rest for your souls! Because my yoke is gentle and my burden is light.
I leave you peace; I give you my peace. I do not give you as the world gives; your heart is not frightened or despondent!
I have spoken this to you so that you may have peace in me. You are in trouble in the world; but be confident, I have overcome the world!
And the peace of God reign in your heart; you are called to this in one body; and be thankful!
But he, the Lord of Peace, give you peace always and in all ways! The Lord be with you all!
2 Thessalonians 3,16
A relaxed heart is the life of the body, but jealousy is gnawing in the bones.
I have the joy of the Lord in my daily life.
Light is sown to the righteous and joy to the sincere of the heart.
Thus the redeemed of the Lord will return and come to Zion with exultation, and eternal joy will be on their heads; They will gain joy and bliss, but grief and sigh will escape.
But now I come to you and speak this in the world so that they can have my joy completely within them.
So far you have asked nothing in my name; ask, so you will be received so that your joy becomes complete! John 16:24
The Lord's commands are right, they delight the heart; the Lord's command is louder, it illuminates the eyes.
You will show me the way of life; joys abound before your face, lovely beings on your right forever!
Boast his holy name! May the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
You love him, although you have not seen him; you believe in him, although you do not see him now, and you will rejoice over him with inexpressible and wonderful joy.
1 Peter 1,8
The love of Jesus is in me, so that I can take a loving attitude towards everyone.
But let the Lord grow and become overflowing in love for each other and for everyone, just as we also have them for you.
1 Thessalonians 3,12
This will tell everyone that you are my disciples if you love each other.
My children, let us not love with words or with tongue, but in fact and truth!
1 John 3,18
And if I had divination and knew all secrets and all knowledge, and if I had all faith so that I could move mountains but had no love, I would be nothing.
1 Corinthians 13,2
The song of love
If I spoke in the languages of men and angels but had no love, I would be a sounding ore or a ringing bell. And if I had divination and knew all secrets and all knowledge, and if I had all faith so that I could move mountains but had no love, I would be nothing. And if I distributed all my belongings and gave my body so that I would be burned but had no love, it would be of no use to me! Love is long-suffering and kind, love does not envy, love does not brag, it does not inflate; she is not indecent, she is not looking for yours, she cannot be embittered, she does not count evil; she is not happy with injustice, but she is happy with the truth; she endures everything, she believes everything, she hopes everything, she endures everything.
The provisional and the perfect
Love never stops. But be it prophecies, they will be put aside; be it languages, they will stop; be it knowledge, it will be put away. Because we recognize piece by piece and we prophesy piece by piece; but once the perfect is there, the piece work is put away. When I was a minor, I talked like a minor, thought like a minor and judged like a minor; but when I became a man, I did away with what belongs to being underage. Because now we see by means of a mirror like in a riddle, but then face to face; now I recognize piece by piece, but then I will recognize as I am recognized. But now there are faith, hope, love, these three; the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13
Now become God's imitators as beloved children
So now, as God's elect, saints and loved ones, warm compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, long-suffering attract; endures one another and forgives one another if one has to sue the other; just as Christ forgave you, so did you. But above all this attracts love, which is the bond of perfection.
Since you have purged your souls in obedience to the truth through the spirit of hypocritical brotherly love, you love each other persistently and with a pure heart.
1 Peter 1,22
Whoever loves his brother stays in the light and there is nothing offensive in him.
1 John 2,10
And we have this commandment from him that whoever loves God should also love his brother.
1 John 4,21
