A Sermon on Romans 13:8-10
Fulfilling the Law Through Love
Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (ESV)
The meaning of loving our neighbour especially important today; modern view denies the Gospel; how love fulfils the law; who is our neighbour? the Christian and the law; mysticism and rigorism; the danger of legalism.
