Friday, December 21

Present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness.—Rom. 6:19.


Our appreciation for God’s undeserved kindness involves more than avoiding adultery, drunkenness, or other sins that some in Corinth had been guilty of. (1 Cor. 6:9-11) Accepting God’s undeserved kindness means not only avoiding sexual immorality but also fighting any tendency to enjoy lewd entertainment. Presenting our members as slaves to righteousness will not only keep us from drunkenness but also move us to shun drinking to the point of almost being drunk. It may require considerable effort for us to fight against such wrong practices; still, it is a fight that we can win. Our goal should be to avoid gross sins as well as wrongs that are not as flagrant. We will not be able to do that perfectly. Nevertheless, we should strive to do so, even as Paul did. He urged his brothers: “Do not let sin continue to rule as king in your mortal bodies so that you should obey their desires.”—Rom. 6:12; 7:18-20. w16.12 1:16, 19-21

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

This morning at Morning Worship at the Assembly hall, the sister that volunteered to read the text accidentally said:

"Presenting our members as slaves to drunkenness"

She paused to collect her thoughts and everyone started laughing!

Then we had another round of mimosas...(just kidding..)
