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. Romans:12:9-13
If we were able to practice this verse faithfully, what a piece of heaven this world would be!
We are to be sincere in love, hating evil, clinging to what is good, devoted, honoring one another above ourselves. We are to be zealous always, keeping our spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. We are to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer, sharing with our fellow believers who are in need, and practicing hospitality.
I love the words in this verse: sincere, devoted, honor, zeal, spiritual fervor, joyful, patient, faithful, share, practice.
They are actions of love.
Dear God, I pray for more ability to love with Your love. Show me how to put Your love in action. Thank You, in Jesus’s Name, Amen.
