theWord

Romans 12:9-13: “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation; continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.” The highest for of love comes from the Greek word – agape – This is a self-sacrificial love. It involves an act of the will whereby one seeks the best for another. Christians should not offer their service half-heartedly or in a lazy manner. Instead, Paul encourages us to serve eagerly and in earnest.
