Scripture Sunday (4)

Scripture Sunday is a weekly post to highlight Bible passages I’ve read recently that were particularly interesting to me. I’m not a qualified expert in any way, so I will keep my thoughts to my highly-subjective impressions. We’ll see how it goes.

From my reading this week:

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor an powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

-Romans 8:38-39

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,” and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”

-Romans 13:8-10

Why I chose it:

I cheated this week and chose two sections. Obviously, they have something in common. It’s always good to be reminded of Christ’s eternal love for us, and and it’s so important that we remember to love others. I can’t get so bogged down in all the whether-tos and whyfors and that I forget to love people. It’s easy to be distracted by all the things we should do or shouldn’t do, need to do or need not to do, and forget the point of it all.
