Love in the Church by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/24/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What would you say about a church that has divisions and factions, envying, strife, contention; a church where there’s a competitive spirit; a church where members are going around suing each other; a church where divorce and immorality are rampant?

What would you say about a church where there is a lot of emphasis on rights? Or a church where married couples are selfish and withhold physical love from each other? What would you say about a church that has a lot of spiritual gifts, but they abuse those gifts and use them to tear each other down?

All those problems are described in the book of 1 Corinthians. In Paul’s letter, he keeps coming back to one basic issue—love. There wasn’t love in this church, and it created all kinds of other problems.

What problems are you facing at home or at church? One of the best things you can do is to ask God to fill you and those around you with His agape love.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
