Good morning!

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.

in Him, Mike
