Love in Action




Love in Action

Love must be sincere.
Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
Be devoted to one another in love.
Honor one another above yourselves.

Never be lacking in zeal,
but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction,faithful in prayer.

Share with the Lord’s people who are in need.
Practice hospitality.

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
Live in harmony with one another.
Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.
Do not be conceited.

Do not repay anyone evil for evil.
Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you,
live at peace with everyone. 

Do not take revenge, my dear friends,
but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written:
“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

On the contrary: 
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. 

In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good.
—Romans 12:9-21

    • I so appreciate you’re sharing this with us, Lugs. I have spent a good portion of my life struggling with forgiveness for things done to me as a young girl. You’re right that it’s not easy to forgive because the enemy makes us question our motives (surely you didn’t really forgive that awful person, did you?), but if we concentrate more on God’s grace and faithfulness, it is easier to live with what we know to be true: that nothing is impossible for God to heal in our hearts.

      Blessings to you and thanks for leaving a comment!
