NO SIN IN LOVE
I Peter 4:8 NKJV "And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”
I feel like I'm about to preach to myself this morning! Hey, before you begin to have a holier-than-thou feeling, let me quickly add that this message is for you too!
We have all "fallen in love" at some point in our lives, but how many of us are still in love with the same people who we once claimed to love? I used the word "claim" because that's what it really was, we claimed to love them without really loving them. The truth is that not many of us truly understand love.
Love covers a multitude of sins! But all hell is let loose because of one offence against us. We say we love but there are people we've not spoken to in over a year because of something that they said to us or about us. We say we love but we never stop talking about the things people did to us very long times ago. We claim we love but we seek our own pounds of flesh! But love covers a multitude of sins! Love buries all sins and never resurrects them. Love forgives as many times as possible. Let us love! No sin in love for love casts out all sins.
