How to Act Like a True Christian – Digging Deep Into Romans 12:9-21

“Be patient in tribulation.” 
Romans 12:12b

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.
Romans 5:2b-4

  • The word tribulation holds many meanings from a simple sadness to great anguish. But in all states of suffering how are we called to face them?
  • It all goes back to the attitude that we talked about yesterday. What attitude do we need to maintain (Psalm 118:24)?
  • Romans 5:24 gives us a reason we should be patient in our suffering. Write it out using this format as an example Suffering = _________
  • And so… we end up back at Hope! What has God poured out for us?
  • He fills us with His love by the power of His Spirit! Read Romans 8:31-29. No matter what may come, physical trials, emotional difficulties, spiritual battles who is advocating for you?
  • Is there any thing that can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus?
  • He truly has a plan for your life to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11) and He can work all things together for the good of those who are called by Him (Romans 8:28). Listen to the song by Laura Story, “Blessings”. How does this change your perspective on suffering?
