The theme of the final verses of 1 Corinthians is love. We saw it first in the imperative in v 14: Let all that you do be done in love. We are to be people characterized by an exhaustive love for God and others, a love that touches all that we do. As Christians, we are to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbor as ourselves.
Love at the heart of Paul’s conclusion to these Christians. This morning, I will consider closely Paul’s words in v 14, but then use it as the overarching imperative for the rest of the book. The big point of the conclusion of 1 Corinthians is Christians must do all they do in love. The end of this chapter shows how we love as Christians.
