Slice of Bread : Romans 13

June 1, 2012

See Bulletin Board.

 Romans 13:

This has been a daily battle for me. Verses 1-5 speak of submission and obedience on a level that is hard for me. It’s hard for me to always drive the speed limit, to always wear my seatbelt. It’s hard for me to always follow every procedure and rule that my department has. But the people who made these rules were appointed by God to these positions to implement these rules. Rules keep us safe, and also give us a way to bring God glory when no one else is following the rules, we do it because we Love God. Not because we want to score points, or make others look bad. We do it because the Word of God says so. We also do it so we don’t have to be afraid of trouble or discipline and the daily one we get to attain is a clear conscience.

Loving is easy sometimes, and very hard other times. You know what I have done as an act of love is just kept my mouth shut. I’ve caught myself sometimes, not all the time yet but I bite my tongue if my words are not uplifting. Me and Danny were just holding each other to that yesterday at work. He caught me slipping a couple of times, but these actions were not driven by Love. When wrong has been done to you learn to just Love. It starts in the heart, tell your heart to Love. Tell your mind to Love. Then act in Love no matter how much it hurts, because as soon as you do the pain is gone, its been replaced by joy!

Glory to God
