The Absence of Love by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/07/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If you look at many conflicts in our world today, you’ll find a lack of love. Two countries fighting over a piece of land—there’s probably a lack of love. Two groups of congressmen deadlocked—that’s probably a lack of love.

The absence of love creates a lot of other problems. It was true in the church at Corinth. The people in the church were tolerating gross sin. They were suing one another, getting drunk during the Lord’s Supper, and dividing into bitter factions.

The apostle Paul wrote to this church and tried to deal with some of the problems. What was his main focus? “Follow the way of love.”

Just as the absence of love creates a multitude of problems, so the presence of love (that is, the presence of God’s agape love) in a church, in a home, in a workplace, in a nation can solve almost every problem you can think of.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
