Scripture: Romans 12

As believers we have to do things differently than the world…

Our lives should showcase the grace given us by God. We should use the gifts given us through this grace to build up the body of Christ. It’s not all about us as individuals; it’s about us loving others as we love ourselves.

Our foremost characteristics should be LOVE, JOY, PATIENCE, and PRAYERFULNESS.

These things come not by our own will but by the Spirit within us.

If we live this way there should be peace among us, however there will always be evil until Jesus returns. We must be prepared through God’s grace and through God’s Spirit to not answer evil with more evil.

Overcome evil with good.

Easier said than done sometimes, but nothing is impossible with God.

Scripture: Romans 11

Would you really want a God that you could completely understand and explain? How simple and unimpressive that would be. We have a God that blows our minds! He blows my mind every day! Every time we open His word and really think about how big He is and what He’s capable of we should stand in awe of all that He is. He is awe-some!

And yet He meets us where we are, gives us the free gift of salvation, and shows mercy unlimited.

29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. 32 For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.

How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” 35 “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?”

36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. 

Amen.
