The Christian Life (Romans 12:9-21) Commentary


Staying on a righteous path is can be a difficult challenge in a world of evil. We are faced with temptations, with terrible events putting us in difficult situations. If we know to hate what is evil, we will know to stay on the right path. Love one another, and love your enemies,  as Jesus asks. Stay humble, as He was, and you will be exalted. Give freely to those in need, remembering always what God gave to you. Be devoted to Jesus above all else! Times will come when you feel discouraged and weary, but in those times we need to be more dedicated to our God, and stand firm in our faith. Love your neighbor, celebrate their good times and support them in their troubles. Be Peaceful. Pride comes before the fall, and leads to sin. Do not let sin take hold, but focus on what is good, which is healthy in all aspects of life. Love must be sincere. Love God, Love your neighbor. Consider the qualities of love:   

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  – 1Corinthians 13:4-7

 

Amen.
