May 26, 2013 – Morning Worship

MondayRomans 12:16–21; Leviticus 19:9–18; James 3:13–18

Consider Romans 12:16 – what’s the point? How do we do it? Obey it? How does it apply to you?

TuesdayRomans 12:16c; Proverbs 3:5–6; Jeremiah 9:23–24; Matthew 16:21–23

“Never be wise in your own sight.” What does that mean? How do we do it?

WednesdayRomans 12:17a; Proverbs 20:22; Matthew 5:38–48

“Repay no one evil for evil.” What does that mean? Sounds like it is unjust, unfair, unwise, etc. Is it? What’s the reasoning behind this command?

ThursdayRomans 17b-18; Matthew 5:9; Philippians 2:1–8

Look carefully at Romans 12:17b-18, especially the phrases “honorable in the sight of all” and “so far as it depends on you.” What’s being taught here?

FridayRomans 12:19; Luke 18:1–7; Psalm 75; 96:10–13

“Beloved, never avenge yourselves.” Why? If we don’t, who will? Why is that better? (Extra credit: why do you think Paul begins with “beloved”?)

SaturdayRomans 12:20–21; Matthew 5:38–48; Exodus 23:4–5

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him” “by doing so you will heap burning coals on his head.” What seems to be wrong with these two phrases? How can we apply them? How do we overcome evil with good?
