Family Devotional Guide - 7/24/22
The Scripture passage for Sunday, July 24 will serve as our Family Devotional Guide readings for this week. Our prayer is that by looking through this passage, Romans 12:3-8, we’ll better understand the subject of spiritual gifts.
Scripture: Romans 12:3
Discussion: Paul opens this subject on spiritual gifts by focusing on humility. In this verse, he commands us “not to think of [ourselves] more highly than” we should. Why is humility so importantin church life? How can we “think with sober judgment” about ourselves and others?
Song: “Receive the Glory” by Bob Kauflin
Scripture: Romans 12:4-5
Discussion: Discuss the significance of comparing the church of Jesus Christ to a body. Why is it important to consider that we, as individuals, are members of a larger group of people, the church (the body of Christ)?
Song: “O Church, Arise” by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
Scripture: Romans 12:6-8
Discussion: Spend some time walking through each of these spiritual gifts that Paul mentions: prophecy, service, teaching, exhortation, giving, leading, showing mercy. What do these terms mean? How are they demonstrated in the lives of Christians today?
