Genuine Love

In a world of “fake nice” people, show genuine love and concern for others.
In Romans 12, we see that in order to be genuine in our love of others, we must:

  • Abhor/shun what is evil
  • Hold fast/tight to what is good
  • Show brotherly affection
  • Outdo others in honoring them
  • Be diligent in your zeal/passion
  • Be fervent/steadfast in spirit/soul
  • Serve the Lord
  • Rejoice in hope
  • Be patient in trials/hardship
  • Pray continually
  • Help others who have needs
  • Show hospitality

Romans 12:9-13

“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.”
