For Wednesday evening services, the Lord has led me to do a Bible study for practical Bible verses in Romans. Please come back to these Bible lessons in order to review them and learn them. Whenever we have learned the meaning of Bible verses and think about them throughout each day, we will be in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Not only that, but when we are in a situation in our daily lives and are tempted to sin, we can think back to what we have learned from the Bible and say to ourselves, "The Bible says to not do what I am tempted to say, think, do, and/or desire right now, so I am going to refuse to give in to this temptation." This is what Romans 12:2 means, and it says, "And 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." This is also the pattern that Jesus used when the devil tempted Him to sin in Matthew 4:1-11.
My copy and paste feature doesn't keep the words that are supposed to be italicized, so instead of me doing it manually, refer to a Bible to see which words are italicized.
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. 2Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. (A Christian shouldn't break the laws of their country. But, if the laws are contrary to the Bible, that's a different story.) 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: (Simply obeying the law is the key.) 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. 5Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. (Obeying law enforcement not only keeps a Christian out of jail and fine-free, they also obtain a clear conscience on the matter before God.) 6For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. (If a Christian pays their taxes and obeys the law, they will easily master this part of their life.)
8Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. (A Christian is also obligated to obey another kind of law; they must love everyone. Successfully obeying this law accomplishes very much.) 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. (Everybody wants smooth sailing and to be treated excellent. If a Christian keeps this in mind and puts them self in other people's shoes, they won't have sexual relations with someone's spouse, kill, rob, lie to and about someone, etc.) 10Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (If a Christian obeys the previous verse, they won't commit a crime against anyone.)
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. 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. (A Christian doesn't know how long their life will last, so there's no time to waste with sin. Keeping on the armor of light (living a lifestyle similar to the one explained in chapter 39 of the pdf file book featured at this website - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com) is the way to go.) 13Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. (Because Christian belongs to Christ, they should live a lifestyle similar to the one explained in the previous verse and avoid sinful parties, drunkenness, sexual activity before marriage, immoral living (extreme indulgence in bodily pleasures, such as sexual activity before marriage, the use of drugs, getting drunk, over-eating etc.), arguing, and jealousy.) 14But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
