Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The apostle Paul wrote the book of 1 Corinthians to a group of believers who were dividing into factions and fighting with one another. He addressed their problems by writing about love. Throughout 1 Corinthians you’ll discover things we can avoid from their example.
For instance, in a community where there’s love, we’ll build each other up. We’ll limit our own personal freedoms if it edifies others. Even if something is scripturally permissible, we won’t do it if it causes someone to stumble in their walk with God. That’s the way of love.
If we’re walking in the way of love, we’ll yield rather than claim our rights. We’ll even be willing to suffer for the sake of the gospel.
Are you walking in the way of love? Are you demonstrating the beauty of God’s love in your church?
