I've been feeling lately that I should undertake a good meaty chapter. Part of me wants completion in December so I can start the year completely new, but I can't escape the leading of the Spirit to press into Romans 12. Many moons ago I memorized Romans 12:1-2, so I'm starting out with verses 3 and 4 for the first two weeks of September. Since I spend so much time in the car which is a great time for me to review and memorize, I'm going to really try and push myself, extend my brain and heart capacity. I don't know how many verses I will take in, but please know, this isn't about quantity for any of us. Our hope and goal is that deep meditation on what the Spirit wants to say to us will be the focus of memorizing. Discipline pushes us through the times of wanting to give up, but His sweet whispers of teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness is what we desire.
Romans 12:3-4 For by the grace given me, I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself in sober judgement, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not have all the same function...
I'll pick up with verse 5 when I can.
God has me on a pretty sharp learning curve right now, and I'm praying Romans 12 brings more clarity to this season of lessons.
