Romans 13 Commentary

Bible Text: Romans 13:8-10 (ESV)

8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Reflection Questions: Romans 13:8-10

  • How would a person’s relationships change if he went from thinking about what people in his life owe him, to what he owes to the people around him? How can I specifically begin to give people in my life what I owe them?
  • Reflect on the truth that love is the fulfillment of the law.  Why is this so amazing? How does this change the way I view people in my life?
  • Reflect on the truth that all of the commandments are summed up in the command to love my neighbor, and the truth that, when I sin, I am doing “harm to [my] neighbor.”  How does this motivate me to become a person of greater love and greater obedience to God’s commandments?
