For our message time this week in Romans 14, God’s Word will address how we are to love those who are different from us. In continued application from Romans 14:1-12, the Apostle Paul tells us that because of the gospel, Christians live in deference to one another. Would you ask yourself, “How do I get along with those that have made different choices than I have on the non-essentials of the Christian life?” Paul goes so far as to say that the work of God can actually be hindered by whether or not you and I love rightly in this regard. Romans 14 teaches us that to show deference to those that live differently is to love them, and God is pleased when the church lives in that kind of loving fellowship and harmony. Today, allow the truth that God spanned the gap between you and Him by infinitely lowering himself at the cross for you to adjust how you treat those that are different! Perhaps the application questions that Pastor Lukus has provided can help you assess how you can better live in unity with those that are different from you. Let’s be doers of the Word and not hearers only!

“As it is the business of tailors to make clothes and of cobblers to mend shoes, so it is the business of Christians to pray.” - Martin Luther

For our message time this morning, the Bible passage addresses how believers ought to live in unity amid diversity. Since the beginning of the church, there have been differences between fellow believers over non-essentials of the faith. God calls us to accept and embrace one another with our difference. This morning in Romans 14:1-12, Paul teaches us to receive one another--to stop judging and looking down on one another. What pleases God in the church is fellowship and sweet harmony. Would you realize today that God has accepted you and you in turn ought to accept your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Pastor Lukus has listed several application questions that will help you attach the word to aspects of your life. Let’s be doers of the Word and not hearers only!

“If I were the devil (please, no comment), one of my first aims would be to stop folk from digging into the Bible. Knowing that it is the Word of God, teaching people to know and love and serve the God of the Word, I should do all I could to surround it with the spiritual equivalent of pits, thorn hedges and traps, to frighten people off… At all costs I should want to keep them from using their minds in a disciplined way to get the measure of its message.” - J. I. Packer

Scriptural Nourishment
We want God’s revealed truth to permeate all of life and ministry. To live means to consume God’s Word. Our goal is to see believers get past the milk of the Word and dig into doctrinal meat. The Bible will take priority and prominence in our worship services for it has the power to change lives. Scripture makes it clear that our true problems are internal rather than external. Therefore, we apply the Word to the heart not just to outward symptoms.

Paul calls God’s people to action, because the day when Jesus will come back is nearer than it ever has been. Sadly, though we give verbal assent to the return of Jesus at any time, we live more like that imminence is part of a very distant future. “Wake up!” Paul says. Jesus is coming back, and His followers must live and love like it. Today, listen to God’s word. Let it adjust how you live your life! Believe that Christ’s return is near. Perhaps the questions that Pastor Lukus has given us would serve you in that by helping you attach the truths of the gospel to your life.

The most important discipline for the Christian is Bible reading.

True Bible-readers and Bible-searchers never find it wearisome. They like it least who know it least, and they love it most who read it most. They find it newest who have known it longest, and they find the pasture to be the richest whose souls have been the longest fed upon it. When one of our missionaries had to read a certain Book of the Old Testament through a hundred times while he was translating it, he said that he certainly enjoyed the hundredth time of reading it more than he did the first, for he understood it better, and it seemed to him to be fuller and fresher the more familiar he became with it.

In Romans 13, Paul tells us that our greatest debt must be the debt of love to others. Last week, Paul turned our attention to government that we might give to it what we owe. This week, we look at our neighbors to see what is owed to them. Paul tells sacrificial Christians that we owe them love. We are bound to love our neighbors by the law! The demands of loving our neighbor are great, but there is more than enough sacrificial love available to us in the mercies of God. Love is not to be a part of your life, but all of your life. Love is to be the law that we live our lives by! Today, would you prayerfully ask God to grow you in your love for your neighbor? Pastor Lukus has given you several questions on the next page to help you apply the truth of the gospel to this issue. Let’s live the gospel, channel grace, and be the church this week!

"Discipline without direction is drudgery." - Douglas Wilson

Our plenty in twenty from 10:00am-10:20am. This week, we dove into the Spiritual Disciplines for Gospel Grace. We began breaking down how we can all become Gospel Grace Church. That can only happen as we submit ourselves to the patterns that God uses to grow us. Discipline yourselves for the purpose of Godliness!

Paul will continue to expound the sacrificial response in view of the active pursuing mercies of God. The next response is that Christians submit to authority, because every authority ultimately comes from God. Therefore, to submit to God, we must submit to every human authority. The good news is that as God changes us more and more into a sacrificial community, we are able to see His hand in authority. We believe that the freedom found in knowing the love of God teaches us to live in humble submission...even to sinful authority. As a Christian, our whole being can be transformed with the truths of the gospel, so that we can submit to any earthly authority. Would you honestly and prayerfully look at your submission? Several questions are on the next page to help you apply the truth of the gospel to this timely issue. Let’s live the gospel, channel grace, and be the church this week!

Today, we turn our attention back to the various aspects of authentic love that Paul has been laying out in Romans 12:7-21. In Romans 12:17-21, Paul shares with us that Christians overcome evil done against them with good from the gospel. When we know that God's wrath against our evil was poured out on Jesus, we are empowered to dispense good to those that give us evil. We are freed from taking up offenses ourselves. This is not natural at all! The only way this can take place is if we are being transformed in the renewing of our minds. As a Christian, our whole being can be transformed with the truths of the gospel, so that we can respond to evil the way our gracious God does. Would you honestly and prayerfully look at how you respond to evil?
