The Priority of Love  


 

1 Peter 4:7-9

“And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins” 1 Peter 4:8.

 

Emergency! The end of all things is at hand! What does Peter advise us to do to get ready for the end of all things? Pay attention and pray, but above all things, love one another in sincerity.

Paul said that Jesus is coming back, and the most important thing he wants Jesus to find is church members who love each other(1 Thess. 3:12, 13). At the Judgment Seat of Christ, love will be the measuring stick to evaluate all our motives. Did we love the Lord with all our heart, soul and mind? Did we love our neighbors as much as we love ourselves?

Love is a supernatural, magnetic energy that draws the world to Jesus. The world knows we are His disciples if we love each other. Our love one to another helps us overlook the minor faults each of us have. This does not mean that love excuses and tolerates sin. It means we are all sinners and regardless of our sins, we love each other. Jesus died for us while we were yet sinners. “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?” (1 John4:20, 21).

 

 

JUST SAYING

God tells us that love is the fulfilling of the law and prophets. We should grow in the fruit of the Spirit,  and that would cover a lot of bases as far as  pleasing God is concerned.
