Discussion for Romans 12

    This is a very important chapter because it's talking to believers, the instructions here is how to live daily and how to conduct ourselves. Whenever we face trials and tribulations he's giving us the way we should be with non believers and by doing what the chapter says we can make people come to Christ that is what we are called to do.

    The Bible also states "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord God will see them through." He is the rock upon which I stand the joy and peace within me and when I am down He lifts me up!!! Who could not HOPE in The Lord?
