By nature, human beings walk in darkness and are shut out from fellowship with God. Until a person has found fellowship with God, by grace through Christ, they will never truly be able to experience fellowship with God’s people. Having a genuine love for one’s brothers and sisters in Christ is evidence that a person has shared in the salvation of Christ. Learn how this love is demonstrated and maintained in sincerity and humility.
9Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,7 serve the Lord. 12Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
