TOPIC: THE DEMANDS OF TRUE LOVE
TEXT: ROMANS 13: 8-14
The instruction in vs. 8 makes the demonstration of true love a debt. Jesus summarized the 10 commandments in Matt 22:39-40. Love is a language that the deaf ears, the object that the blind sees. Our love for God is best exhibited in our obedience to His word. (see Jn. 14:15). A growing understanding of God's love in our heart refines the believer so that impurities and sinful thoughts are consumed. Read vs. 12b again. What does it mean to “cast out the works of darkness”?
Are there things you need to cast off?
Who do you find difficult to love?
Dear Lord, grant me a better understanding of Your love that I may be able to show it to others, in Jesus name, Amen.
