Romans 12 challenge

image

Happy Sunday! I thought I’d check in with those of you who are participating in reading Romans 12 every day this month. I’m doing pretty good…I’ll confess I’ve forgotten a few days here and there. Oops! The above passage is one that’s really been sticking with me. EarIier this week, I shared with some friends on Instagram how verses 4-6 have been rolling around in my head. We are not all the same in our ability to minister…we all have different strengths and weaknesses so no one way of ministering is BEST or more CORRECT. Different parts of our physical body accomplish vastly different purposes for our survival and each purpose is extremely important. Even the smallest functioning part would be missed if it is taken away. I need to remember this when I start comparing myself to others. I shouldn’t feel “less than” because my personality and experiences are directed by the Lord so that I will be able to connect with others in a way unique to who I am in Him. So I need to knock it off with all the doubting I do and be confident in how the Lord has made me and in what I can possibly bring to others.

When I’ve talked to some of the others who are reading with us this month, it’s fun to see that they are thinking about the chapter from an entirely different angle. Feel like sharing? Have you been pondering over anything this month? We’d love to hear!

Also, we have been listening to a broadcast online at Truth For Life by Alistair Begg. It’s a four part look at Romans 12 and it’s really good!

    Great post! And SO true! We all provide essential and valuable things to the body of Christ and no one is “better” b/c of what they bring! You are an amazing wonderful woman of God!
