The other day the kids and I got out the game UNO. Now as a kid I used to play this game all the time and I played in such a way that I never had to read the rules. It has been awhile since I had played the game so I felt that I needed a little refresher. So I opened up the instrustions and discovered that the way I always had played the game in the past was a little bit different then what I was reading.
For me I find Romans 12 as a good refresher to living the Christian life. It is a reminder to us as Christ followers on how to live life under the authority of Jesus.
- How to worship God (verse 1)
- Knowing God’s will for your life (verse 2)
- Humility (verse 3)
- The need to discover and use the gifts we have been given (verses 5-8)
- Take LEADERSHIP seriously (verse 8, 14-19)
- LOVE……authentically (Verse 9 – 10)
- Do something with your life (Verse 11)
- PRAY (verse 12)
- Do something for those in need (verse 13)
- Conquest EVIL….through Jesus Christ (verse 21)
Sometimes we just need a little refresher. If you are wondering if you are living a Christlike life read chapter 12 a few times over.
