The Kingly Law of Love….

If, now, you carry out the royal law according to the scripture, “You must love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing quite well.
===============================
 In particular, they loyally live by “the kingly law” of love.  What do these laws involve?

Christ’s subjects are not free of imperfections and failings.  Hence, they need to keep cultivating “unhypocritical brotherly affection” so as to “love one another intensely from the heart.”

“If anyone has a cause for complaint against another,” Christians loyally apply the law of the Christ by “putting up with one another and forgiving one another freely.” Obeying this law helps them to keep overlooking imperfections and to find reasons to love one another. Do you not appreciate being with those who in loyal submission to our loving King clothe themselves with love, the “perfect bond of union”?

Furthermore, Jesus explained that the love he exemplified went beyond the love people commonly show for one another. 

If we love only those who love us, we would not be doing any “extraordinary thing.” In that case our love would be incomplete and defective. Jesus urged us to imitate his Father’s love by having principled love even for enemies who hate and persecute us.

This love also moves subjects of the Kingdom to persevere loyally in their main work. What is that?
