Text: Romans 12 (1 Samuel 19-20)
Romans 1-11 is a lengthy treatise on Christian doctrine. When we come to chapter 12, we find instructions on Christian living. The text is very dense, filled with rich content. Like this:
“Outdo one another in showing honor.” (Romans 12:10)
What an idea! Picture what this looks like – as we always are striving to render honor toward one another. Imagine what it would be like if we were bragging; “There’s this woman at church who is just amazing in her kindness, generosity and willingness to serve.” “That fellow right there is such a blessing – everyone he comes in contact with experiences joy.” “She is such a good mom.” Or perhaps -“Please, please, take the best seat and be honored. It suits you.” Wouldn’t that be an amazing way to live? In Christ we are able.
