Our Romans lesson is really a challenging one. It’s not challenging to understand. What’s challenging is carrying it out. Paul’s encouragement for God’s people seems impossible: “Love must be sincere … Hate what is evil … Cling to what is good … Be
devoted to one another in love … Keep your spiritual fervor … Be joyful in hope … Patient in tribulation … Constant in prayer” … plus 22 more.
So today, let’s try this. Let’s take that list of 30 and squeeze and squeeze and squeeze until we have it down to these 2: 1) Demonstrate a self-sacrificing love. 2) Overcome evil with good.
