“The fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, etc.) is impossible to manifest by yourself. These things only come about in the context of relationship.

That’s why Jesus sent out His disciples 2 by 2…that’s why He sends the church out as a body. Because He’s not just revealed by you or me individually.

It’s in the relationship of believers that the love of Jesus is manifested to the world.”
