Love with Strength…

Read: 1 Corinthians 15-16
Marked: 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all [that] you [do] be done with love.

As Paul completes his letter to the Corinthians he gives some final exhortations. Watch, stand fast, be brave, be strong, do all with love. I think the emphasis is on love and we are to love with strict attention which is what the word, watch, means. Likewise, we are not to move from our responsibility to love God and love others.

The word, brave, literally means, to make a man of, or, to act manly. Love, therefore, is an indisputable aspect of the character of a godly man or woman. Godly love and love for God and others is the strength of the man or woman of God
