Romans - Aim at Love - - Central

Episode Summary

When one thinks about a section of Scripture that deals with love, 1 Corinthians 13 always comes to mind. But this short section of Romans also tackles the grandiose topic of love. According to Paul, we owe a debt of love to each other. Most debts, in fact all debts except for this one, sap us of our time and energy as we try to figure out how to repay them. The debt of love, conversely, frees us up and sets our heart loose. It allows the law to be fulfilled in us. If we aim at the law, we will end up with legalism. If we aim at love, we will get the law thrown in. God, grant us the desire to aim at love. To aim at Eternity. To aim at Christ! Romans 13:8 - 14
