Love Letters: Fulfillment
The First United Presbyterian Church
“Love Letters: Fulfillment”
Rev. Amy Morgan
November 3, 2019
13 No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth."
14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they ridiculed him.
15 So he said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of others; but God knows your hearts; for what is prized by human beings is an abomination in the sight of God.
16 "The law and the prophets were in effect until John came; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is proclaimed, and everyone tries to enter it by force.
17 But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one stroke of a letter in the law to be dropped.
8 Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
9 The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet"; and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, "Love your neighbor as yourself."
10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.
This week, the Rev. Bethany Benz-Whittington joined Rev. Amy Morgan for a conversational proclamation about love, law, and fulfillment.
