I. Righteousness of God Demonstrated in Christian Duties........... 12:1-13:14
Rom 12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Rom 12:3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Rom 12:4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
Rom 12:5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Rom 12:6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
Rom 12:7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
Rom 12:8Or 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.
Rom 12:9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
Rom 12:10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
Rom 12:11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
Rom 12:12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Rom 12:13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
Rom 12:14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
Rom 12:15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
Rom 12:16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
Rom 12:17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
Rom 12:18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Rom 12:19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Rom 12:20Therefore 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.
Rom 12:21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Rom 13:1Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Rom 13:2Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
Rom 13:3For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
Rom 13:4For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
Rom 13:5Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
Rom 13:6For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
Rom 13:7Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
Rom 13:8Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
Rom 13:9For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Rom 13:10Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Rom 13:11And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Rom 13:12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
Rom 13:13Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
Rom 13:14But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
