Lenten Worship 2021
Lenten Series – “Being a Christian – Advice from Paul in Romans 12”
In Romans 12, the Apostle Paul offers wise counsel for how to be a Christian – not how to be saved, that is the gracious work of Christ in us – but how to live every day the life we have in Christ. Paul speaks to our renewed relationships with God and each other, our belonging in the beloved community of Christ, and the gifts we have all been given to serve the Lord and one another. He also presents ‘Marks of a True Christian,’ which are characteristics – like patience, hope, and generosity – that demonstrate our faith put into practice.
Paul’s advice in Romans 12 will be the focus of our Bible Study for this Lenten Season. This study is based on the “Book of Faith Lenten Journey: Marks of a Christian” by David L. Miller, which you can order here if you’d like a personal copy.
