Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Without the love of Christ we can divide on the smallest of issues. And without the law of God we would lose respect for each other and destroy ourselves. The entire law can be summed up in the command to love others as much as you love yourself. For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. As sin increases in this dying world grace must increase. There is so much knowledge in the world that we cannot morally handle it. Agreeing to disagree goes by the wayside and friends become enemies because of real problems in society. Only the love of Christ in our hearts sharing fellowship with each other can keep tempers at bay. Only the love of Christ can love the stranger and the enemy with a pure heart. There is so much injustice in this world that our minds and hearts cry out for truth. When we help carry each other's burden we fulfill the law of Christ. Let faith stir within when you see someone that needs the love of Christ. Lord, help us to not be indebted to no one, except to one another in love, for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the Law. The world has been bankrupt through sin, Christ love is making the world rich with righteousness and peace.
