Tree of Life Day 76: Romans 12-14

This passage struck me in this way today:  here are some practical ways that the Spirit works to transform us (12.2):

He gives us gifts to use (12.3-8)
He helps us to love good and hate evil (12.9)
He helps us to honor one another (12.10)
He energizes us for good work (12.11)
He marks us with hope, patience, and generosity (12.12-13)
He gives us endurance and perspective in trial (12.14-21)
He aids our submission to God-ordained human institutions (13.1-7)
He helps us kill our fleshly desires and grow godly ones (13.8-14)
He keeps our eye on the weaker ones around us, giving up our freedoms for their good (chapter 14)

Need any work on any of those areas today?

  1. maybe we should replace may of those 'helps' to 'provokes'?
