Because we all have ISSUES, it is important to be governed by LOVE. If any of us were perfect then we would not have to give mercy, but because we all have ISSUES, then we should be full of grace and mercy toward each other.
IF YOU NEED MERCY, GIVE MERCY!!
As a person with ISSUES we are governed (controlled by) the law of LOVE!
Governed by the law of LIBERTY in Jesus = LOVE
Paul was talking about food offered to idols and how at times when they were invited over to a sinners home they would be eating meat offered to an idol. Paul said for him since there were no other gods, he understood that it was his liberty of conscience to eat after blessing it.
Others could not eat this meat because they were weak in faith. They were young in the Lord and they felt conviction in their conscience when they ate.
I Cor. 10:23 – Paul was saying even though all things are OK for him, all things are not edifying
The True law of LIBERTY IS LOVE
3Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, (NKJ)
Be governed by loving others! This is foreign in our American culture; we usually take care of US first. Put Jesus and others first today…..show love!
