1. While we owe things to those in authority, what do we owe to other men?

Neighborly love: “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law” (Romans 13:8).



2. While there are line by line commands, what instruction summarizes the fulfilling of the law?

To love thy neighbor as thyself: “For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Romans 13:9-10).



3. What were the Christians in Rome expected to do to prepare for what was coming upon them?

Cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light walking honestly: “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep:for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying” (Romans 13:11-13).



4. In putting on Christ, what should be done concerning the flesh?

Make no provision [supply; Strong’s #4307] for the flesh: “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” (Romans 13:14).
