Romans 12 Profile

I am reading a  book called “Living On the Edge,” on applying what is  found in Romans 12  to our  daily  walk for the Lord.  Here  is one of the  outlines in the  book.  (Note: I  don’t  agree  completely  with  everything the  author  says in his  book; but  I do feel  that with  discernment, we can   profit from it.

  1. Its focus in on your relationships:
  • Your relationship with God ( Rom. 12:1)
  • Your relationship to this world’s values (Rom. 12:2)
  • Your relationship with  yourself (Rom. 12:3-8)
  • Your relationship with believers (Rom. 12:9-13)
  • Your Relationship with unbelievers. Rom. 12:14-21
  1. It is  about  grace, Romans 12 follows  eleven chapters that give us the  clearest and  most detailed account of Christ’s work on Christ’s work on our behalf.
  2. It’s practical and measurable. Romans 12 is  filled with specific commands (to be  fulfilled through the  Spirit’s power) that set the bar for maturity in each of those five relationships.
