Passage: Romans 13:8-10 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: A Community of Sacrificial Saints
In Romans 13, Paul tells us that our greatest debt must be the debt of love to others. Last week, Paul turned our attention to government that we might give to it what we owe. This week, we look at our neighbors to see what is owed to them. Paul tells sacrificial Christians that we owe them love. We are bound to love our neighbors by the law! The demands of loving our neighbor are great, but there is more than enough sacrificial love available to us in the mercies of God. Love is not to be a part of your life, but all of your life. Love is to be the law that we live our lives by! Today, would you prayerfully ask God to grow you in your love for your neighbor? Pastor Lukus has given you several questions on the next page to help you apply the truth of the gospel to this issue. Let’s live the gospel, channel grace, and be the church this week!
