Application for May 4-5, 2013 :: Romans 12:9-10


===

Romans 12: 11-13

Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

As I looked at this list one of the phrases stood out to me. Serve the Lord. It stood out, because it seemed like something that should be a heading, not a part of a list. Isn’t all of this supposed to be serving the Lord.

I mean, I thought, ‘Serve the Lord’ as opposed to what? And then I realized – we’re all serving something. We’re serving other people, or our job, or our pride or our sin.

Paul here is telling us that we should avoid doing that by serving God. Over everything Else.

But again I ask (about this passage’s list of good things to do) – what if we all did each of those things a little each day?
