This text is an expansion of Galatians 5:6 , explaining what this faith that produces loves that pleases God leads to. This is the first command, other than "trust Jesus" in Paul's letter. He has laid the "by grace alone" foundation. "God will save you, He will rescue you, He will give you faith, He will make you loving..." God is sovereign. One of the ways God makes us loving is by commanding us in His word, and convicting us in response to it. (I, when preaching his, am praying this happens - That our hearers, after being confronted with the Word of God and a work of the Spirit, will become more loving). Serving one another, without love , does not fulfill God's will. 1 Corinthians 13:3; John 15:13; Luke 6:27-30 We have said that 'religion' can imitate the 'gospel.' Both can be good people doing good things. Externally, a person devoted to religion may look to others (or even to themselves) like a person devoted to the gospel. But their hearts (the wellspring of the 'good things') have different motivations, affections, and motives. The heart of religion is motivated by fear. The heart of the gospel is motivated by love. Religion : "I must do this" (fear); " I did this" (self-love, self-reliance). Very exhausted, very proud (or very depressed). Gospel : "I love to do this" (love); " By grace , I did this" (God-love, God-reliance). Secure, joyful, deeply at peace. Love others as we love ourselves. Look out for the interest of others, considering them better than us ( Philippians 2:3 ). Do I long for the happiness of others as much as I long for my own happiness?
