TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

 DUTY IN SUM AND SUBSTANCE  [2]

          Four expressions in 1 Peter 2:17 set forth the sum and substance of our duty to God and man.  “Honor all men” is the first one.  The second one is “Love the brotherhood.”  The brotherhood is the church, the family of God.  We love the brotherhood because of a common Fatherhood.  God is the Father of every Christian.  We love the brotherhood because we sustain an intimate relationship with each other.  We love the brotherhood through kind thoughts (1 Corinthians 13:4) and by extending a helping hand (Luke 10:33-35).   (more next week)

          Watch In Search of the Lord's Way , Sunday at 8:30 AM on Massillon Cable channel 22.  If you have access to the internet, please visit our website:  www.masschurchofchrist.org
