No Wax

Romans 12:8 says we must love sincerely. It literally means without wax. The background of the word is best illustrated in art of that day. A sculptor would often use a wax to cover up mistakes on a sculpture. Done well these small places would be unnoticeable for years until dirt and age would show the imperfections. A sincere sculpture was one with no such cover ups. It was without wax.

I challenge you today to love without wax. The difficult part of such love is that we are imperfect and the people we love are imperfect. The Bible also teaches that love covers a multitude of sins.

Insecure love cannot cover sin. Sincere love is not a relationship that is right because there exists no wrong. Sincere love is a relationship that is right in spite of all wrong.

Sunday we will jump deeper into this passage to learn more about sincere love. Hope to see you at 8:30, 9:45 or 11 AM at Fellowship Church.
