Verse of the Day (May 24, 2020)

Verse of the Day (May 24, 2020) #BMSeminary – Happy Lord’s Day! “Let love be genuine” (v. 9) may be the heading under which to understand the rest of this chapter, and perhaps beyond. Love combines with faith and hope (see 1 Cor. 13:13) to describe the highest fulfillment of God’s saving Word to his people (see Rom. 13:8–10). Genuine love, produced by the gospel through which God’s love is “poured into our hearts” (5:5), detests evil and pursues good (12:9). It spawns mutual affection in the church and promotes others (v. 10). It is zealous, fervent, and selfless for the Lord’s sake (v. 11). In the most difficult of circumstances, love overcomes through hope, steadfastness in suffering, and prayer (v. 12). It is openhanded and openhearted to others and their physical needs (v. 13). These things describe the love shown to us by the Lord Jesus himself in the gospel. To love genuinely is to live compassionately toward others in the way that Jesus himself has already treated us. (Gospel Transformation Study Bible)
