Marks of the true Christian

I came across this amazing list of commands from the Apostle Paul in Romans 12:9-20 today…seemed like a good exercise to list them out. My Bible has a heading that says “Marks of the True Christian.”  I need work on some of these, how about you?

  1. Let love be genuine
  2. Abhor what is evil
  3. Hold fast to what is good
  4. Love one another with brotherly affection
  5. Outdo one another in showing honor
  6. Do not be slothful in zeal
  7. Be fervent in spirit
  8. Serve the Lord
  9. Rejoice in hope
  10. Be patient in tribulation
  11. Be constant in prayer
  12. Contribute to the needs of the saints
  13. Seek to show hospitality
  14. Bless those who persecute you
  15. Do not curse them
  16. Rejoice with those who rejoice
  17. Weep with those who weep
  18. Live in harmony with one another
  19. Do not be haughty
  20. Associate with the lowly
  21. Never be wise in your own sight
  22. Repay no one evil for evil

  1. Wow. I just got really tired. Now I see why the law apart from Christ is such a heavy burden to bear

    1. Amen, thanks for your comment. God’s loving grace empowers us to live for Him, plus when we are – we serve in the Spirit from His overflowing into our hearts. It won’t work if we just do it in our own strength! (Phil 4:13)
