Fruits of the Holy Spirit - 1

For Confirmation prep, the twins are examining the 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit. The first is LOVE...
Jesus told us how to love in Matthew 22: 37-39. St. Paul explained what love IS in 1 Corinthians 13: 4 - 8.
(From St. Padre Pio)
LOVE is a message from God through Jesus.
When we live in LOVE our life is simpler. We can focus on the ones we LOVE without too many distractions.
God doesn't want us to be stressed, but to feel LOVED.
Our first decision should be to live for Jesus, to give him your life totally and completely, with all your strength.
Live for heaven and not for earth, and you will not be as stressed over your daily life.
Concentrate on how Jesus is LOVING you. Jesus LOVES you enough for everyone on the whole planet with you at this point in time!
Concentrate on how Jesus is able to flow His LOVE through you to others.
This is the renewal.
This is the process of the Second Coming, which has already begun.
Jesus returns to earth through each one of His beloved Apostles.
If you are thinking that perhaps you are not called to be His apostle, let me clear that up immediately and state with all certainty, that Jesus is calling you to live in His LOVE.
