Love Is Not Optional  

August 24 
Daily Reading – Psalms 66-68 / Romans 13

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Romans 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    I grew up in the 60’s when the Beatles were popular. They sang a song entitled “All You Need Is Love.” Whether they realized it or not, the Bible said that way before they did. It says we’re to love our neighbor as ourselves. You might be thinking, what if they are adulterers, homosexuals, drug addicts, or murders, are we supposed to love them too? The answer is yes.

    The Bible tries to help us see the difference between the person committing sin and the sin itself. Sin is what sinners do. Jesus died for the sinner to cleanse them from their sin. We can and should hate sin. However, we can and should love the sinner. Remember, we as believers are sinners who have been saved by grace.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  For Christians then,
love is not an option, right?
