Romans 12:13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
For the last month or so I have had Romans 12 in front of me...taking it apart verse by verse and allowing the power of this text to strengthen my spiritual core. These verses are part of a section that describes how a gospel-centered believer should behave.
What could happen in your life if you adopted these ideas as a lifestyle? Contribute to the needs of your brothers and sisters in Christ. Seek to show some hospitality.Bless people that hurt you. Be sympathetic to what others are going through...good and bad. Live in harmony. And let peace rule wherever you end up.
This is the perfect way to end another week! Let the words settle inside of you and soon they will help transform all of you. Have an amazing weekend!
