Love

Be Anxious for Nothing

IMG_8936

Fret and worry indicate a lack of trust in God’s wisdom, sovereignty, or power.  Delighting in the Lord and meditating on His Word are a great antidote to anxiety (Psalm 1:2).  

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Philippians 4:6.

The bedrock of faith is the reality that God keeps all His promises according to His truthful, faithful character.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Lamentations 3:23.

Set your love upon Him

God Himself is the speaker in this section (verses 14-16) and He describes the blessing He gives to those who know and love Him.  The word for “love” means a “deep longing” for God, or a “clinging” to God.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Psalm 91:14.

Love Fulfills the Law

When a Christian genuinely loves others, he fulfills all the moral requirements of the former Mosaic law concerning them.  This is the ruling principle of Christian freedom.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Galatians 5:14.

Taught By God To Love Each Other

Ambition is a characteristic that people in our society value greatly.  However, society’s view of ambition is “getting ahead,” “grabbing all the gusto,” “living for number one.”  All of these ambitions center on pursuit for the self.  The Christian’s ambition, however, is to strive for the kingdom of God.  Christians do not live to be flashy; instead, they seek to be obedient servants of Jesus Christ who is Lord of the church.  Whatever we do, let us do it faithfully, as unto the Lord, and let us be a positive force in society – serving those around us rather than stepping on people to get to the top.
