~ Genuinely Share The Victories of Others ~
Series Note ~ In just the single chapter of Romans 12 the Apostle Paul gave believers a list of 39 things which are part of the Christian life which pleases God. This chapter is crying out saying, “If you name Jesus Christ as your Savior then please act like a Christian!” It is Paul’s “To Do List” for us. The key principle is that while you and I cannot change God’s character (who He really is) we have the clear potential to damage His reputation (what others think He is).
Scripture to Meditate On ~ “Rejoice with those who rejoice” (Romans 12:15a).
Related Passages ~ Jesus said, “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance” (Luke 15:4-7).
