Lord, I pray I'm not oversimplifying this. It seems if we love You, we love Your law (which are Your instructions) and giving way to those things not of or for You or others loses its appeal. Though the appeal may be gone, the nature is there, but again, loving You and living according to Your grace helps us to increasingly grow further from that nature and closer to You.
I pray You open this up more to us. The back and forth, we are all familiar with. Not one of us is exempt, I assume. I pray we recognize it, as Paul did, but keep moving forward, just as Paul did, rather than becoming apathetic or complacent. Your LOVE IS DEEP AND WIDE.
Thank You Jesus, amen.
