Romans 13:8-14

“Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law” (v10). Paul said that we are called, as Jesus’ followers, to fulfill the principle of the commandments by loving one another. “The night is far gone; the day is at hand” (v12): in other words, time is short. We can’t afford to remain entangled in things like “orgies and drunkenness, … sexual immorality and sensuality, … quarreling and jealousy” (v13). These behaviors keep us bound and broken, fighting ourselves instead of living freely and joyfully.

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ” (v14). Jesus wants to cover us with His grace and His Spirit, making us people who reject sin and love one another.
