May 1, SSMT Verse

My verses are Romans 13:9-10. NET

For the commandments, “Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not covet,” (and if there is any other commandment) are summed up in this, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Love is a word which is thrown about casually these days. I think sometimes it is hard to remember love is sacred. Love is constant, it is not conditional, it is not based on the emotion of the moment.

Our love deepens as we spend time with the Lord in prayer, in His Word, listening to Him, following Him, living for Him, worshiping Him. We are changed daily by His love. It is by and with his love we minister. We are called to love the unlovable which we cannot do in our own power.

And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
