Obeying the Law Through Love

Romans 13:8-14              Sunday, August 2, 2015       Link for audio/video/manuscript

We need to wake up. The night has passed. The new day is dawning—the day of our Lord’s return will be soon. We need to get moving and do the things that need to be done. In these days, obedience to God, more than anything else, means love. When we are obedient to God by loving each other and loving the world, we are then caught up in His eternal purposes for humanity. This is not about getting our act together; its about humbly obeying the Law of God through love. Obedience to God and His Word and His Holy Spirit is a loving response - a loving response of gratitude in who God is and what God has done for us, and a loving response of joy in the law of God, the commandment of God, to agape love others as God agape loves us.
