SUMMARY: In Romans 12:9-12, the Apostle Paul urges believers to love without pretense, hate what is bad and cling to what is good, love each other with brotherly affection, and give preference to one another. He also encourages them to be diligent, fervent in spirit, and to serve the Lord at every opportunity. The two main concepts he highlights are to be joyful in hope and long-suffering in tribulation. The root of the believer's joy is the blessed hope of the second coming of Jesus Christ, which gives us encouragement to continue forward and endure everything. Love for God gives us emotional vitality to move forward in life and believe that everything is possible.

The love of God gives us emotional vitality to move forward in life. The believer should never despair, but always have hope. Even in times of trouble, the believer has options and a way out. The Apostle Paul encourages believers to be joyful and resist in tribulation, standing firm in the Lord. The believer's position is one of war and resistance against the enemy, and we must continually strengthen ourselves in the Lord to stay strong. We should put on the full armor of God to stand firm against the devil.

The passage from Ephesians Chapter 6, verse 10 reminds us to be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. We need to continually strengthen ourselves spiritually, feeding ourselves with the word of God, worshiping Him, and eating spiritual proteins to stay strong. We need to put on the full armor of God to stand firm against the wiles of the devil. We should be patient and affirm our hearts, especially during times of tribulation. Even when everything seems to be going wrong, we should choose joy, hope, and victory over depression, defeat, and hopelessness. We need to resist and endure, standing firm in the name of the Lord. We should never give up and continue trusting in God, even if He does not remove our trials. We should always rejoice in the Lord and be glad in the God of our salvation.

A simple life

In this series based on Romans 12, Dr. Miranda emphasizes that God calls us to transform rather than adapt to today's culture. If we take God seriously, He will take us seriously and we will see great changes in our lives.

Little by little we have been breaking down this biblical text that has turned out to be extremely rich for our edification. We go to verse 9 and from there then we will continue. Let me say a short word of prayer to gather the mind again and focus it on what God has for us this morning.

Father, now focus our spirit on your word and remove all distractions from our minds and emotions. It is beautiful to be able to meditate on your teaching. We want to do it with an understood heart, Father, with a mind enlightened by you, always giving you glory and honor and knowing that what we process is not a neutral word but rather the very life of God manifested through his revelation and thus the We receive with open, humble, simple hearts, subject to your truth. We guide Lord and focus on you now and give us rest so we can be in the spirit when listening to your teaching. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
