Romans 12 Commentary

Bible Text: Romans 12:4-8 (ESV)

4 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, 5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Reflection Questions

Romans 12:4-8

  • Reflect on the phrases “do not all have the same function,” “individually members one of another,” and “having gifts that differ.”  Have I accepted these truths, or is there some degree of resistance to the way these truths work out in my life?
  • Among the gifts listed, which gift do I possess?  Have I been a good steward of these gifts?
  • What is the significance that those who have the gift of doing “acts of mercy” are urged to do it with cheerfulness?
