Letters to Corinth: Be Who You Are

Spiritual Gifts, part 3

It is easy to reduce religion down to a series of commands: do this, don’t do that, clean your life up! Most people would prefer a religion that they have to simply obey; even if that religion asks them to do hard things. What God expects of His children isn’t simple obedience; God asks of us to do the impossible—love like He loves. Our words, thoughts and actions are to be bathed in His kind of love.
