Meat eater or vegetarian? Which are you and what do you think of the other side? How do we treat people we don't agree with. How do we treat believers we dont agree with. This goes way beyond meat.
How you live your life depends on how much time you think you have left. The Apostle Paul tells us in this weeks passage that the time is short. How would you live the rest of your life if you knew that your time was short? How would you change the way you live this week?
When I say Government what pops into your mind. How do you see your government. How do you see God through the lens of your government. Pastor Augusto reminds us that the United Sates is not the only government. And believers all over the world wrestle with living right under their governments too.

The power of Love makes a young man sing. At least thats what Huey Lewis says. But as we see here in Romans 12, the spiritual Gifts we have been given aren't for us, they are to be used to Love the people around us. Being a Christian means we are supposed to love God first, then our brothers and sisters in Christ, then our neighbors including those we don't know, and even our enemies. Do that and then stand back and watch the power of Love.
