How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

Evidence of a New Life

Romans 12:3-8

My Sermon Notes from January 16, 2022 Full Text: 罗马书 Romans 12:3-8

我憑著所賜給我的恩典,對你們各人說,不可自視太高,高於所當看的,反而應該照著 神分給各人信心的大小,看得適中。 就像一個身體有許多肢體,各肢體都有不同的功用; 照樣,我們大家在基督裡成為一個身體,也是互相作肢體。 照著所賜給我們的恩典,我們各有不同的恩賜:說預言的,就應當照著信心的程度去說; 服事人的,就應當照著恩賜去服事;教導的,就應當照著恩賜教導; 勸慰的,就應當照著恩賜勸慰;把財物分給人的要真誠;領導的要殷勤;行善的要樂意。

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.


Discussion Questions:

  1. What transformation is evident in your life?
  2. Is serving others, especially in the Body of Christ, clearly demonstrated in your life?
  3. Which of these essentials of serving do you need most? Humility? Confidence? Selflessness? Faithfulness?

Spend some time to examine your life of service and in praying for God’s grace and enabling.
