Romans Week 4: Day 3
Pray and read
Praise God for revealing himself by his word, and ask him to help you hear and respond to it with repentance and faith by his Spirit at work in you. Read Romans 12:3-8.
What is Paul’s opening instruction in these verses? What is his reasoning?
Paul uses the image of a body to make his point. How does the illustration work?
How ought each part of the body operate within the body?
Have you considered how you might fit within the body of believers at Providence? Are there ways you might serve the body, according to your place within in it?
Do you think of yourself more highly than you ought? How might you develop genuine humility, particularly with regard to the gifts God has given you?
Praise God for the gifts with which he has blessed the body of Christ at Providence.
Ask God to give you wisdom and humility as you look to serve the rest of the body God has called you to.
