Walking in Love does not equate passivity! Love is an action verb and requires discipline and rebuke on occasions. (Hebrews 12:6, 2 Timothy 3:16). Love is fiery just as much as it can be peaceful. Song of Solomon describes love as passionate, jealous, and stronger than the grave. (S of S 8:6). Love motivates and it protects. Walk in the Spirit and let His pure love lead you, it may look different than you think.
I had to be put in hiding for a time as a child, and it was my father and family’s love that took action. It may have looked unloving to some at the time, even to ‘governmentmal authority’ but it was for my protection, and I thank the Lord my father was not passive! Let us by God’s conviction and grace be done with passive Christianity.
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives”, do not confuse or mix the world’s peace with God’s peace, for they are very different.
