14 “Let all that you do be done with love.”
14 Let all that you do be done with love.
The fifth and last command is to do everything with love. Love for fellow Christians is at the foundation of Christianity. It will preempt infighting and schism among believers.
Love must be the controlling principle in the midst of problems.
Christians love because God shed His love abroad in our hearts; Romans 5: 5 “Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” It is something that we did not pray about or develop on our own. It was something the Holy Spirit did at the point of salvation.
1 Pe 1:22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,
1 Pe 4:8 And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”
