5 words

Romans 13

8 Owe nothing to anyone - except for your obligation to love one another.

If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God's law.

9 For the commandments say,

"You must not commit adultery.

You must not murder.

You must not steal.

You must not covet."

These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment:

"Love your neighbor as yourself."

10 Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God's law.

Think about that – love fulfills the requirements of God's law.

All the commandments are summed up in 5 words...

Love your neighbor as yourself.

It is the Holy Spirit's job to convict.

It is Jesus' job to redeem.

It is God the Father's job to judge.

And it is our job to love.

Love your neighbor as yourself.”

There you have it.
