1 Peter 4:8

1 Peter 4:8

"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins."

Our Lord Jesus Christ told us that the world will know His disciples when we love one another. Love is the great call of a Christian and the Apostle Paul's more perfect gift of 1 Corinthians 13. Love must flow out from our hearts, yet it must be natural and true, never forced or fake. The Apostle Peter tells us this is of tantamount importance with his words “above all”.

When we love each other deeply, as Peter admonishes, we learn to forgive one another and give grace where another might judge harshly and bring justice. Christian love gives grace no matter the sins of our brothers or sisters before they came to Christ. Christian love gives grace should they stumble in sin even now. We are to forgive seventy times seven. Love, grace, and forgiveness, therefore, are the hallmarks of a true child of God.
