Application of Romans 12:10-11
Transcript of Application of Romans 12:10-11

James Poniewozik, Time Magazine
Through the Gospel, love solves our discouraging relationships in the Church.
Love Draws you Close
“We are born helpless. As soon as we are fully conscious we discover loneliness. We need others physically, emotionally, and intellectually. We need them if we are to know anything, even ourselves.” – C.S. Lewis

as a Learning Tool
By using the term brotherly affection, Paul intends for us to lean into our family relationships as a tool to think about church relationships.
