Building Each Other Up by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/18/12

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?

Verse of the Day

[The Day of the Lord] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, — 2 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJV)
