Love is not an option!
Loving one another is not an option, but rather it is mandatory for Christians. The Bible is very clear that we ought to love one another, but what does that look like? In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul talks about love in great detail. He just finished discussing spiritual gifts in chapter 12, and then he discussed unity and diversity of the church emphasizing that we are one body. Then immediately in chapter 13 Paul begins to discuss the attributes of love, which leaves the reader only to make the natural contextually conclusion that chapter 13 of 1 Corinthians is about love as it relates to the local church, specifically in unity and diversity, and also in how we use our God given gifts.
