Walking in the Way of Love: A Practical Commentary on 1 Corinthians for the Believer (Volume 1)
by Nathan J. Langerak (New Author!)
432 pages, Hardcover, Coming January 2018
A love that disciplines impenitent sinners; a love that will not fellowship with the impenitent sinner; a love that will not endure false doctrine or those who teach it; a love that suffers the loss of all earthly things, including earthly friendships, goods, and standing for the sake of the truth; a love that says what the apostle Paul says at the end of his great book on love, “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha,” is true love. It is God’s love and Christ’s love manifesting itself in the believer. These and many other hard things belong to the way of love as revealed by the Holy Spirit and in which 1 Corinthians calls the believer to walk.
1 Corinthians clearly points out what the God-pleasing way of love is. It calls all to walk in that way and to reject the world’s way of love. It also comforts the poor believer who walks in this way and is unfairly slandered for his walk. It defends his actions as love. It comforts him with God’s approval for the loss that is invariably involved for the believer who walks in the way of love.
