Stand Firm and Be Loving
v.13-14 – ‘Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.’
Paul continues to remind us to stand firm in our faith, not being persuaded by teachings that do not fit with the gospel message. And, as he rounds off his letter to the Corinthians, he continues to emphasize the importance to love.
We need to be strong and courageous as we hold to our faith in Christ Jesus. We also need to remember to do this, in fact to do everything, in love.
Dear Jesus, please help me to stand firm in my faith in you. As I do this, please help me to remember to show your love to others through how I treat those around me. Amen.
