The Godly Man’s Picture – Part 1 – Romans 12:9-21

The apostle proceeds to stir up to the exercise of grace, and the discharge of such duties as were common to all the members of the church; and begins with “love”, which is the cement of saints, and the bond of perfectness, without which all the gifts that men have, the profession they make, and works they do are of no avail, and they themselves nothing. Here it is to be taken, in the largest and most comprehensive sense, for love to God, Christ, the saints, and fellow creatures, and ought, with respect to each, to “be without dissimulation”; or “hypocrisy”. Love to God should be with all the heart, soul, and mind, otherwise the fear of him, and obedience to him, will be only outward, formal, customary, and hypocritical. Love to one another should be not in word, and in tongue only, but in deed and in truth; yea, the love professed to fellow creatures, ought never to be through fear of men or mercenary views, but honest, upright, and sincere. – John Gill
