Read Through Romans – Day 23

Jason Gray is one of my favorite Christian artists.  His music is vulnerable and heartfelt.  God has encouraged me through many of his songs.  In fact, his “a way to see in the dark” CD is my surrender soundtrack.  Jason Gray is releasing a new CD in March (and yes, I did pre-buy it!).  Take a moment to listen to the title soundtrack, With Every Act of Love because it ties in perfectly with today’s Romans reading.  This blog post gives even more insight into the heart behind the music and can help prepare your heart and mind for what we’re studying.

Read Romans 12:9-21.

Here are some questions for you to consider:

  • What is the theme of these verses?
  • Read John 13:34-35.  What is the new commandment Jesus gives to his disciples?
  • Verse 9 encourages us to really love others, rather than just pretending to love others.  According to Romans 12:9-21, how can we really love others?  Make a list of all the ways we can show love from this section in Romans.
    • Now choose 1-2 ways to love others from your list and put them into action this week.
    • How do these verses inspire you to love others more intentionally?
  • Read Romans 12:12.

Isn’t it incredible to think that our acts of love can point others to Jesus?  Let’s intentionally show love this week… to those we know and even to those we don’t know.  Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:18 NLT
