Week 43 Day 7
Faith in Jesus transforms our living
and makes everything
Re-created in the likeness of Jesus
we truly become children of God
Here we have a new emphasis
the culmination of Paul's whole letter
"How are we to live?"
This is the practical application of Paul's gospel
of Paul's theology
Faith gets put into action in our daily living
and this is what it looks like
It is faith in Jesus
and not New Years resolutions
that produces right living
In contrast to what people were doing
with their bodies in chapter one
we are by faith to offer
our bodies and minds
as a living sacrifice to God
We are not to conform and follow
we are to lead
It doesn't matter what others do
or what others do to us
this is what we are to do
God wants to transform our thinking
our thought patterns and processes
our actions and reactions
Faith is an action word and it's out in the vanguard.
Faith will transform your day-to-day living.
Romans 12 & 13
1By the mercies of God, present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
3Through the grace given to me, I say to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought
to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a
measure of faith. 4As we have many members in one body,
but all the members do not have the same function, 5so we are
one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is
given, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in faith;
7or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches,
in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads,
with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling
to what is good. 10Be kindly affectionate to one another with
brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;
11not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
12rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, steadfast in prayer;
13distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
14Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
15Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who
weep. 16Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not
set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble.
17Repay no one evil for evil. 18As much as depends on
you, live peaceably with all. 19Beloved, do not avenge
yourselves, but rather give place to wrath, for it is written,
"Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. 20"If
your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a
drink; in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head."
21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
8Owe no one anything except to love one another. 9All
commandments are summed up in this saying, namely,
"You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 10Love does no
harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
11 It is time to awake out of sleep; for our salvation is nearer
than when we first believed. 12Night is far spent, the day is at
hand. Cast off the works of darkness; put on the armor of light. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
