A Simple Life (Romans 12:1) Part 4
Dr. Roberto Miranda
We’re going to Romans, Chapter 12. We’ve been preaching a serious of sermons on, I call them horizontal sermons, sermons that deal with the daily life of the Christians, both in the context of the church and also in the context of the daily existence in general. We’re going to begin with verse 3:
I don’t know if everybody has their Bible in English but I’ll translate loosely. It says: By the grace that is given to me I say to you, to each one of you who’s among, that you don’t have a higher esteem of yourself than you need to have, but rather to think of yourself with modesty according to the measure of faith that God gave to each, because in the same manner that in our body we have different members, but not all the members have the same function, in that same way, being many we are one body in Jesus Christ and all members one of the others, in such a way that having different gifts according to the grace that is given to us, if we have the gift of prophesy let us use it according to the measure of faith; or if of service, in serving: or if teaching, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who shares with liberality, or with generosity; he who presides with zeal and he who makes acts of mercy or performs acts of mercy, with joy.
