Loving Discipline by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/10/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What would it look like for the members of a church to really love each other? The book of 1 Corinthians addresses that.

Paul writes that when there’s sin in the Body of Christ, those who truly love are grieved. When necessary, they even exercise church discipline. They love the sinner so much that they want him to be restored.

Paul writes that a loving church won’t have sexual immorality. Love leads to purity. Husbands and wives fully give themselves to their mates. They stay committed for life, even if their mate is an unbeliever.

And Paul says that when we’re walking in the way of love, we speak well of other believers. We affirm them instead of being critical.

Do these things describe your church? Ask God to help your fellowship be characterized by true, godly love.
