Romans twelve. The lifestyle chapter. If you want to know how apply Christianity to life this would be good chapter to memorize.
This morning I can’t stop thinking that this chapter is the Mayberry RFD of Christianity.
Offer our bodies as living sacrifices
Don’t conform but be transformed by renewing our mind
Be humble and also know that we have a place in the body of Christ and so too we have a job to do for and with the body of Christ
Love, love with sincerity
Be joy full, be hope full, be patient full (?)
Be real with those around us, cry and laugh when appropriate
We don’t get to get our revenge. Our story should never make a good spy novel.
Live at peace, as far as it is possible, with everyone
Give your enemy his needs, food and water. Our enemies are people who hate us, because there are no people that we hate.
Do not be overcome with evil but reverse that, overcome evil with good
And now i will whistle a tune and smile. Knowing who i am and whose I am. Probably won’t fish for fish but I might fish for men. A very mayberrian life.
