The Multitude of Sin (by Carley Evans)

“Above all things,” writes Peter, “have fervent love among yourselves; for love shall cover the multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8, KJV)

I like the King James’  use of the article “the” rather than “a” for Peter’s description of multitude. We carry the multitude of sins to be covered by fervent love — virtually the weight of mankind’s entire history of sin can be felt by the individual Christian. Imagine that same weight crushing the body of Jesus Christ on the cross — His fervent love for us covered the multitude of sin.

If we practice even a tiny bit of His love for one another, our lives here on this earth can only be better.

Heavenly Father, thank You for love – love which covers the multitude of sin. Enable us to truly love one another as You love us. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
