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

  • Romans 12:10b is the opposite of what our culture encourages. It is not all about ME ME ME. Instead, who is our example (Philippians 2:1-11)?
  • What does Philippians 2:3 tell us about how we should think about others?
  • Do you think this only applies to our friends and family (see Matthew 5:44)?
  • It’s sometimes difficult to be nice or even to pray for someone we do not like. But, Genesis 1:27 has a great reminder. Write it down.
  • Now, insert the name of a person into verse 1:27. Then, write down a prayer for them.
  • Christ is our example. No matter how broken or sinful the person, he took time to stop, encourage, &  love those he came in contact with. Ask Him who you need to be showing more honor, then ask Him to change your heart and equip you with His love.

  • How are we called to clothe ourselves?
  • What binds together all of the characteristics?
  • Can others see that you are wearing the special garments that God has chosen for you?
  • Ask Him now to completely clothe and equip you to love the way He has called us to love.

True Love

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?
