Presentation on theme: "Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning!"— Presentation transcript:

1 Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning!

2  Paul’s point here is that when we faithfully obey the command to love, we will be submissive to authority, pay our bills, and generally live a quiet and peaceable life because we are neither demanding our rights nor taking vengeance; instead, we are giving the needs of others first priority.

3  Paul didn’t want the Christians to be labeled as another rebellious group like the Jews  Being a member of a society or nation has both privileges and responsibilities

4  obey the laws of the land,  respect those in authority,  pay their taxes

5  Do all things without complaining and disputing…  Without fault in the midst of a crooked generation…  You shine as lights in the world

6  The next principle that Paul gives us  summarizes the whole law,  it covers all the bases

7  Not a prohibition on borrowing  But a call to pay off our debts  A ________’s work is never done  The debt of ­­­­­­­­­­­­­____ is never paid up  The only debt we should never consider paid up is the debt of love

8  The reason we obey the other laws is not just to keep out of trouble, but  so that we can serve the needs of others.  I don’t need a long list of “don’ts” when I applying the “dos” of 1 Cor 13.

9  is not whether we are being loved by others  but rather that we are loving others.  We don’t keep a running record or score

10  When we faithfully obey the command to love, we will be submissive to authority, pay our bills, and generally live a quiet and peaceable life because we are neither demanding our rights nor taking vengeance; instead, we are giving the needs of others first priority.

11  He has shown you o man, what is good.  And what does the Lord require of you?  But to do justly,  To love mercy,  And to walk humbly with you God.
