48. Life in God’s Service (Romans 12:7~21)

12:7. Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
12:8. or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
12:9. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
12:10. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
12:11. not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12:12. Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
12:13. Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
12:14. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
12:15. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

12:18. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

12:20. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
12:21. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
