Stand Firm in Brotherly Love

Oct 31, 2021    Wayne Braudrick

We Christians are expected to obey God’s truth, a responsibility that includes purifying our souls in regard to love for our fellow believers. This love should be expressed fervently. Such familial affection is sincere and pure. Looking at the disunity of depraved humanity, one wonders how such love could ever be experienced! Peter expresses the reasons such philos can and should be experienced in the local church:
1.We’re children of the same Father. (1:23a and previous section)
2.We eat at the same table; i.e., we are nourished by the permanent Word of God. (1:23b-25; 2:2-3)
3.We have common enemies. (2:1)
