Love does no wrong

Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Romans 13:10

Have you seen the latest “He Gets Us” television campaign commercials? It seems that those commercials have created a bit of a stir recently. Why? I don’t think it is related necessarily to the message they convey, but what they omit from the message of Christ.

A complete picture of Christ is one that is dependent on His full character –

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

The current trend of telling Christians that we have to accept certain social and political positions out of “love for our neighbor” turns that upside down. It degrades love to acceptance of ideas or behaviors, and becomes contrarian at any inconvenient limits or contradictions to behavior in the name of Christ. Thus, using Christ’s words, people run the risk of dismissing Christ’s words.

Phil Steiger

I think Steiger gets to the heart of the matter we face today. We can only love people when we love them with Jesus’ grace and truth. Any other picture of Christ is incomplete.
