The Epistle of Paul to the Romans is the flagship of all the author’s 13 or 14 books (if we give the authorship of Hebrews to Apostle Paul). The book contains all one needs to know about Christian education. Whoever desires to thoroughly study the Pauline letters should study the “Romans” first in order to understand the others.
Inchapters 6-8 of the Romans, Apostle Paul laid down what “newness of Christian life” entails. However, in Romans 12:1-21, he emphasizes on (a) self-dedication (verses 1, 2); (b) co-operation and harmony in the church (3-8); personal attitudes of Christian believers. (9-21).
• We are to exhibit love that is real and not feigned.
• Abhor anything evil and evildoers.
• Cleave to that which is good.
• Never be lazy in whatever you do (v.11)
• Be fervent eager in spirit in serving the Lord (see Matt. 11:12)
• Give or contribute to the needy in Christ (v.13)
• Be given to hospitality or be accommodating.
• Bless your enemies or persecutors (Matt 5:44).
• Don’t curse but bless (v.14).
• Move only with godly and honest people (v.16)
• Don’t be selfish nor conceited (v.16)
• Never pay back evil for evil (v.17).
• Don’t live above your income;
• Live peaceably with all men as far as possible (v.18)
• Don’t avenge for yourself; let God, the righteous judge, avenge for you (v.19)
We must be practical Christians inside and outside. Some Christians are Christians on Sundays and wolves on other days and elsewhere! Are you one of them? Be a true Christian indeed
Romans 12:9 “Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.”
Help me, merciful God, to live a life free from any form of condemnation and make me a candidate of Thy heavenly home in Jesus’ name. Amen.
