"We Are To…"

“We Are To…”

Blessings folk!

We continue to examine the “how” of OneAnother…

Romans 12:10-13
10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;
11 not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
12 rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer,
13 contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.

Look at the actions involved…
Look to who/where/how the action is directed…

We are to…

  • be devoted...to OneAnother...in brother love
  • give preference...to OneAnother...in honor
  • be diligent...not lagging behind
  • be fervent...in spirit
  • serve...the Lord
  • rejoice...in hope
  • persevere...in tribulation
  • be devoted...to prayer
  • contribute...to the needs (not greeds) of the saints
  • practice...hospitality

Let us ask ourselves if we do so…
  • hospitable?
  • contributing?
  • devoted?
  • persevering?
  • rejoicing?
  • serving?
  • fervent
  • diligent?
  • honoring?
  • loving?
  • devoted?


If we live this way, the world will be drawn to the Lord.
If not?
Well, we see that already…
  • people leaving the fellowship of the church
  • people refusing to gather with the Body

They see the hypocrisy.
Live this way and hypocrisy will be crushed.
