UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
People want to know how to live in a manner that transcends the selfish and corrupt ways the world. How can they live to fulfill the law of love? Paul urged Jesus’ followers to allow the love of Christ to transform their minds into Christ-like minds, so that they would be able to love one another and themselves as Christ had loved and continued to love them.
At our acceptance of Jesus as our Savior, we did not change on the outside. We still looked the same. Sure, we have sung the songs that our “hands looked new and our feed did, too.” But we knew we were still the same physically. Yet, on the inside we were radically different. Our whole way of looking at life changed in an instant. The Holy Spirit is renovating us from the inside out over our entire lives. Jesus will complete the final touches and present us to His Father in heaven.
Loving God, we call on you today to help us love others as you would have us to love them. We know that some people are hard to love. Yet, we are trusting in your Holy Spirit to guide us into responding in the way that you instructed us to do. We thank you for your love for us that makes it all possible. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Paul’s teachings on law and grace was the same as Christ’s. Paul appreciated God’s grace and respected His law. Paul emphasized in his writings that we are not to sin so that grace may abound.
