Everyone thinks of Corinthians as the “love” book... but while I was reading Romans 12, I saw what love actually looks like in action
•Let love be genuine. •Abhor what is evil; •Hold fast to what is good. •Love one another with brotherly affection. •Outdo one another in showing honor.
•Do not be slothful in zeal,
•Be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. •Rejoice in hope, •Be patient in tribulation, •Be constant in prayer. •Contribute to the needs of the saints •Seek to show hospitality. •Bless those who persecute you; •Rejoice with those who rejoice, •Weep with those who weep. •Live in harmony with one another. •Do not be haughty
•Associate with the lowly. •Never be wise in your own sight. •Repay no one evil for evil
•Do what is honorable in the sight of all. •Never avenge yourselves,
•If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; •Do not be overcome by evil
•Overcome evil with good
This passage definitely hit me like a ton of bricks. I saw how I’d been slacking, ignoring and resisting the Word. However, I also saw areas that I am growing in and doing well in- and knowing that pleases the Lord is exciting and encouraging. I know I have a lot to learn and practice, what about you? .
