Series Note ~ In just the single chapter of Romans 12 the Apostle Paul gave believers a list of 39 things which are part of the Christian life which pleases God. This chapter is crying out saying, “If you name Jesus Christ as your Savior then please act like a Christian!” It is Paul’s “To Do List” for us. The key principle is that while you and I cannot change God’s character (who He really is) we have the clear potential to damage His reputation (what others think He is).
Scripture to Meditate On ~ “Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord” (Romans 12:10-11).
Comment ~ Some years ago I would occasionally see a wonderful bumper sticker which read: “My boss is a Jewish Carpenter.” That should be the Christian’s mindset at all times and in every situation and place.
Related Passages ~ “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthaians 10:31). “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him” (Colossians 3:17). “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ” (Colossians 3:23-24).
