Romans 13

Taking a calm moment in my rather full day to mull over this chapter. The first thing that really grabbed me was "Do not owe people anything, except always we love to each other, because the person who loves others has obeyed all the law." v8
What a great verse for me this year with my word being "love".

And then building from that; Verses 11-12 are so full and moving.

"Do this because we live in an important time. It is now time for you to wake up from your sleep, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The "night" is almost finished and the "day" is almost here. So we should stop doing things that belong to darkness and take up the weapons used for fighting in the light."

just builds on to today's sermon so nicely!
