Romans 12:1-8

12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

  • Do I tend to think of my needs or others?
  • Do I think of myself as belonging to my brothers and sisters?
  • What would that look like?
  • What are my gifts?
  • How will I use them for the benefit of my brothers and sisters?
  • Thank God for your church family and pray that he will help you serve them
  • Ask that God will grow and strengthen your church community

Today’s podcast is from The Gospel Coalition Australia: Dealing With Anxiety by Paul Grimmond and Carolyn Russell. Definitely on the long side, but this is a topic that deserves – and for many of our brothers and sisters needs - time. Paul personally experienced serious anxiety and Carolyn is a GP who has lots of experience helping patients with anxiety.
