A.    Fulfilling the Law of Christ to the Believer

  • We love because He first loved us (1 John 4:10, 11)
  • We are now to continue to live in, dwell in that love
  • How do we abide in His love? By keeping His commandments
  • What are His commandments? Love one another as Jesus loved you
  • Love is the vehicle through which we receive from God
  • His commandments are to believe and love
  • Christ’s commandment: Love God and Love your brother
  • The Law of Christ is to love one another – bear one another’s burdens

B.    Fulfilling the Law of Christ to the Unbeliever

  • We can agapé our enemies because the agapé of God has been shed abroad in our hearts
  • Demonstrating agapé to the unbeliever brings great rewards and demonstrates your Sonship
  • Agapé your enemy and the unbeliever is mimicking, imitating God
