eph 05v02 Walk In Love


"...WALK IN LOVE..."

Ephesians 5:2

                This is the law of Christ's kingdom. This is the believer's rule of life. This is the characteristic of God's elect. "We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death...He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." Love is patient, not irritable. Love is longsuffering, not easily offended. Love is kind, not mean. Love is sacrificial, not selfish. Love is caring, not cruel. Love is forgiving, not hostile. Love is trusting, not suspicious. Love is thoughtful, not rash. Love is generous, not greedy. Love is faithful, not irresponsible. Love is lasting, not temporary. Someone said, "If this is what true Christianity is, then there are few Christians in the world today." He was right. "Faith worketh by love." The two go together. They cannot be separated. Where there is true faith in Christ there is true love for the brethren.
