The Absence of Love
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: If you look at almost any conflict in our world today, you’ll find a lack of love. Two countries fighting over a piece of land—there’s probably a lack of love. Two groups of congressmen deadlocked—that’s probably a lack of love.
The absence of love creates a lot of other problems. It was true in the church at Corinth. The people in the church were tolerating gross sin. They were suing one another, getting drunk during the Lord’s Supper, and dividing into bitter factions.
The apostle Paul wrote to this church and tried to deal with some of the problems. What was his main focus? “Follow the way of love.”
Just as the absence of love creates a multitude of problems, so the presence of love in a church, in a home, in a workplace, in a nation — the presence of God’s agape love can solve almost every problem that you can think of.
