.    Conclusion


Paul began this epistle by reproving the Corinthians for their uncharitable schisms and unchristian divisions;

He concludes his epistle with this excellent rule of advice, "To do all things in love".

This true principle of Christian charity should prevail amongst the members of a church, it will cast out selfishness, pride, envy, division.

1. The Command to LOVE

1 Corinthians 16:14 "Let all your things be done with charity."

"Let" - "to cause to be, be brought to pass, be finished, follow, be found, be fulfilled..." (cf. Gen. 1:3, 6,9,11,14,20,24,26)

The Command of the LORD

Psalm 33:6 "By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth."

Psalm 148:5 "Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created."

Matthew 22:37-39

"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

2. The Compass of LOVE "All Your Things"

1. In their Gifts (1 Cor. 1:4,5; 12:1; 14:1 )

2. In their Knowledge (1 Cor. 2:6-8; 8:11)

3. In their Attitudes (1 Cor. 3:3)

4. In their Relationships (1 Cor. 5:1)

5. In their Judgment (1 Cor. 6:1-4)

John MacAuthur's Comment

"Love complements and balances everything else. It is the beautiful, softening principle. It keeps our firmness from becoming hardness and our strength from becoming domineering. It keeps our maturity gentle and considerate. It keeps our right doctrine from becoming obstinate dogmatism and our right living from becoming smug self-righteousness."

3. The Encouragement to LOVE

Romans 13:8,10 "Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law...Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."

John 13:34 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

Matthew 5:44-45 "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."

Comments of Albert Barnes

"True love to another makes us kind to his imperfections, charitable towards his faults, and often blind even to the existence of faults...If we love them we are ready to cover over their faults, even those which we may see in them."
