It all comes down to love whether we like it or not. All the times we sin against each other, against God, and do what we want. Romans 13:8-10
“8 Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law. 9 For the commandments say, “You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.” These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God’s law.”
We see A LOT of good stuff in this passage! We see that everything has to do with love, it always comes back to love. We need to pay all our debts to each other, but we cannot finish paying our debt of love to each other. The truth and fact of the matter is, that if we love each other and love God, we will be more inclined to do His will and serve each other than to sin. If we truly love God, we will not sin because we love Him too much to hurt Him. There is a reason that all commandments are summed up in one commandment. Love does no wrong, that’s why!
The truth is, that if we truly love God, we will put our pride aside and stop caring about the way we look or dress. If we love God, we will put our selfishness aside and stop fulfilling our selfish desires of lust, jealousy, envy, and so on. If we love God, we will stop caring about our wants and only focus on Him and His wants for our lives. After all is He not the one who created us. After all don’t you think that the one who made you would know who is best for you to marry, what the best school or job is for you, what your life requires to be happy? So why do we fight so often with Him and put ourselves before others and Him? Because we are prideful and sinful humans. That’s why we constantly are in need of repentance and need to beg for forgiveness. That’s why we need to pray to be more humble and pray that we can love more and more each day. Because as I have said in the past; if we are not growing as Christians and lovers of Jesus, than what’s the point?
I hope that this devotion spoke to you and really touched something somewhere. I pray that you may open your life to God’s power and might so that He may change you and form you into the human being and creation He wants you to be.
