“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” -Romans 12:9-10
Our world has a twisted definition of love. When sin entered the world, it perverted the meaning of love. Communion with God was broken. Sin has marred the love we should have for God and one another. The only way our love can be restored is by trusting in Christ.
Love should be the rule for the child of God, stimulated by the Spirit of God through the mercies of God. Know the depths of God’s love for you so that you may love others genuinely without facade or hypocrisy.
