How does our love for God and others measure up to the Gospel's standard?
The Gospel clarifies that love calls us to holiness. – 12:9
The Gospel clarifies that our love for others should be active. – 12:10, 13
The Gospel clarifies that our love for Christ should have depth. – 12:11-12
If you claim to be saved then you are saying the Gospel has led you to surrender your life to Jesus and as such honor Him with your life for who He is – GOD! This specifically means we must love God and others the way He has called us to love. Therefore, measure how you love God and others against how the Gospel calls us to love God and others. Be honest about what’s lacking and ask God to melt your heart with His love for you so that you can enjoy the awesomeness of loving as He loves you!
