Digging Deep Into Romans 12:9-21

“Let love be genuine.” 
Romans 12:9a

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.

“Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love,
love one another earnestly from a pure heart,
 since you have been born again,
not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God”
1 Peter 1:22-23

  • What is Truth  (to find out what Jesus said look up John 8:31, John 14:6, John 18:37) ?
  • How do we purify our soul (see 1 John 3:3)?
  • What is the result of our transformed life… our souls have become pure through Christ for a reason. What is it?
  • Who are we to love (see John 15:12)?
  • How are we to love?
  • The definition of “earnest” is – showing a sincere & intense conviction. Rewrite 1 Peter 3:22b inserting that definition in place of the word earnest. Love one another…
  • Still, earnest love will mean nothing unless we have what heart condition?
  • What does the word pure mean to you?
  • This pure, earnest love pours out of us as a result of what?
  • Respond… is there anything you need to change? What does “Genuine Love” look like to you?

Love with a heart made new by the Spirit that lives within you!
