Love Does No Wrong

The way I figure it, if the one who loves his brother abides in the light (1 John 2:10), then it is pretty important to love my brother. Because it is so important, we've been fixing our attention on what it looks like to love, not in word or talk, but in deed and truth. Tomorrow, we will consider what love has to do with our morals, since "love is the fulfilling of the law" (Romans 12:10).

Love in Deed and Truth

The Word of God tells us not to love in word or talk but "in deed and truth." We must love in actions which are true actions, actions which participate in truth. We must love in truth which issues in right actions. Now that the Scripture has taught us what it means to love in deed and truth, we need to do the hard work of applying it faithfully to every area of life, starting with our worship. Join us to practice loving in deed and truth.
