Abstract

It’s been said, “Love is a verb,” and Paul paints a beautiful picture of the actions of love in Romans 12. Mountains of confusion exist over the concept of love. We misuse it romantically; we wield it manipulatively; we give it selectively; we abuse it selfishly. But according to Paul, we should exercise love toward everyone—friend and foe—although the way we love may look different in different situations. In Romans chapter 12, Paul writes with rapid fire as he gives application to a biblical love “without hypocrisy” that God expects us to practice toward believer and nonbeliever so that we can “live in harmony with one another.”
