TUESDAY (1/26/21)

  • Read Romans 14:9-13

Paul is explaining here that there are those in our bodies with strong faith and there are those whose faith is weak.

  • Spend some time reflecting on the following questions:
  • Why do you think we all have the tendency to judge and look down on one another? What needs to change in us?
  • How does knowing that we will all stand before God alone and give an account level the playing field between us all?
  • What does it look like to not put stumbling blocks in the way of other brothers and sisters? Has anyone ever put a stumbling block in your path?

MONDAY (1/25/21)

  • Read Romans 14:1-8

Reflect on the following questions:

  • How would you define what a “disputable matter” is?
  • What is Paul trying to teach us here?
  • How does passing judgment in a “disputable matter” harm our relationships and ultimately our body of believers?
  • How does belonging to the Lord affect your normal life?

SUNDAY (1/24/21)

As you prepare for the worship service this morning, relax and listen to some worship. Ask the Holy Spirit to prepare your heart to be soft towards his word.

WEEK 2 • MEMORY VERSE • ROMANS 13:8

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.

SATURDAY (1/23/21)

Paul also tells us in the verses from Thursday to “clothe ourselves with the Lord Jesus.”

  • Read Colossians 3:12-17

This is another passage where Paul fleshes out a bit more what it looks like to clothe ourselves.

  • Consider the following questions:
  • What are we clothing ourselves with from this passage?
  • Is there something that pops out to you from this list that you want to pray about growing in? Perhaps pause and ask the Holy Spirit, “what do you want me to pay attention to today?”
  • Again, we see the focus on loving. Who are you struggling to love right now? Spend some time praying about that.

FRIDAY (1/22/21)

In the verses from yesterday, Paul tells us to put on the armor of light.

  • Read Ephesians 6:10-18
  • On a separate piece of paper, list out the pieces of armor and their purpose.

Spend some time reflecting on the following questions:

  • Living with a sense of urgency requires some proactive work. What does it look like for you to “put on” this armor?
  • What pieces are most necessary for where you are at today?

THURSDAY (1/21/21)

  • Read Romans 13:11-14
  • On a separate piece of paper, write out the commands given to us in this section.

Spend some time reflecting on the following questions:

  • What brings the sense of urgency to these verses?
  • Are there deeds of darkness that you sense the Spirit wants you to put aside?
  • Who can you share this with today?

WEEK 2 • MEMORY VERSE • ROMANS 13:8

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.

WEDNESDAY (1/20/21)

  • Read Romans 13:8-10
  • On a separate piece of paper, write out some thoughts about the following questions:
  • How is loving actually fulfilling the law? How does this work itself out?
  • How are the commands actually reflections of loving our neighbors? Give some practical examples.
  • Here we are told that love does not harm. Later, we are told that love blesses even when it is cursed. Today, who can you seek to “do no harm” to?
