PCUSA Daily Lectionary Readings
1 Corinthians 15:55-57 - ““Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

PUT ON LOVE

            When Paul tells us in Colossians 3:14 to “put on love”, he isn’t telling us to do a ”put on”, a “play-acting”.  He is telling us to “put on Jesus Christ”.  Let the love that God poured out upon us through Jesus saturate our thinking, actions, our speech.  The preceding challenges (compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience) are spiritual clothing.  We could say that “love” is the belt holds it altogether and in their place.  As Paul tells us “love, which binds them together in perfect unity”.

            How often have we said, “God is love”?  How often have we read or quoted John 3:16?  “For God so loved the world…”?  When the New Testament writers wrote about this “love”, they used the Greek word “agape” (the Greeks of that day had 5 words to describe various facets of love that basically trim down to “love” and “like” in English.  The King James Version of the Bible uses the word “charity” in 1 Corinthians 13, the great love chapter of the Bible.  The translators used “charity” to express the fullest import of “love” or “agape”: love that gives without the conditions of “what are you going to give me in exchange for the love I am expressing to you?”  This is what Paul is challenging us to live by in our relationships with one another.  This unconditional love creates unity, not dissention.

            Let us love one another unconditionally.  Unconditional love builds, strengthens, and marinates our lives unconditional.  It will bring an out-pouring of the Spirit of God in our church.  (Read 1 Corinthians 13 daily for a month.)
 

God bless!  Fred
