Sermon Notes

Scripture: Romans 12:9-16  (NIV)

Romans 12:9-16New International Version (NIV)

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

Message: Follow The Leader
In the above text, Paul gives us a list describing how a true Christian should act.  Did Paul just think these suggestions up and then decided they would make a good addition to chapter 12?  Actually Jesus said all of these things while He was walking the earth, teaching and encouraging the people to live a holy life.  
If Paul and the other disciples did not write down the teachings of Christ, what would we know about our Savior today?  
Christ follows the Father.  Paul follows Christ.  Who do we follow?  Who do our children follow?   Pastor Vicki Mann
