Romans 12 B

This chapter is incredibly rich! Every verse deserves its own day of meditation and application. If you’re looking for a chapter to memorize, try this one!

“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” (10)

I feel it a great privilege to know exactly what this looks and feels like. I am wealthy when it comes to friends and community. I’ve written before about my home church in Portland, Montavilla Baptist, my family and many of my friends (including Carly duh) who exemplify this affection.

This is the kind of thing every person craves, right? People do insane things to belong somewhere. If this is what we all want, why don’t we become community builders/creators. This chapter has a great outline of tips on how to do it!

  • Recognize our membership with one another (5)
  • Utilize and cultivate our God-given gifts (6)
  • Love genuinely (9)
  • Rejoice! Persevere! Pray! (12)
  • Be generous and hospitable (13)
  • Bless one another (14)
  • Have compassion and sympathy (15)

You get the idea. Choose something from this chapter and consider how you can foster this sort of atmosphere in your community.
