Christian Conduct Pt. 2 | Romans 12:15-18 | Week 73

One thing that is crucial to remember in any section of Scripture that deals with Christian conduct is that these instructions are given with the assumption that the believer will utilize the resources he or she has in Christ to execute the prescribed conduct. If not, the believer will turn the Christian life into a legalistic list of do’s and don’ts and will NOT live from the source of life which is Christ Jesus.

Christian Conduct Pt. 1 | Romans 12:10-14 | Week 72

This morning, we continue in a section we started last week on Christian conduct. One thing that is crucial to remember in any section of Scripture that deals with Christian conduct is that these instructions are given with the assumption that the believer will utilize the resources he or she has in Christ to execute the prescribed conduct. If not, the believer will turn the Christian life into a legalistic list of do’s and don’ts and will NOT live from the source of life which is Christ Jesus.

Proportionate Walking | Romans 12:7-9 | Week 71

Join us as we continue to look at spiritual gifts given to the body of Christ. It will be noted that each believer has been given a spiritual gift, AND each believer has been given the faith in order to execute their spiritual gift in an acceptable way to the Lord. Each gift is to be exercised by the believer in proportion to their faith, not kept to oneself or exercised as one determines, but rather as they trust the Lord and His resources.

Connected, Yet Diverse and Unique | Romans 12:3b-6 | Week 70

One of the reasons Paul was intensely pleading for the three things mentioned in verses 1-2, was because of his desire to see the spiritual gifts God has given each believer be maximized in their effectiveness (verses 3-8).

We find that each believer has NOT only been gifted with a spiritual gift of grace, but that they also have been gifted the necessary allotment of faith to rely upon God to exercise that spiritual gift effectively. These gifts are given to believers ONLY and are designed for the purpose of building up Christ’s church.

More Gracious Pleading | Romans 12:2-3 | Week 69

Paul is begging or pleading the Roman believers to do two things: (1) Do not be conformed by this age, AND (2) Be transformed by the Lord. These two things, along with presenting our bodies as those alive from the dead are crucial in the successful outworking of the Christian life in spiritual gifts among the body of Christ (verses 3-8), and in conduct among the world (verses 9-21).
