Romans 12:20

Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Romans 12:20

Inspirational Thought
In this twelfth chapter of Romans the apostle Paul points out many principles concerning the conduct of Christians toward one another. As members of the heavenly family, we should help and strengthen each other. There is a heaven to win. “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” Will we think of these words? Will we work to this rule, overcoming as Christ overcame? His example is before us. No one need walk in darkness. All may be overcomers, joining in the work of helping others to overcome.

In His mercy, God invites us to dedicate ourselves—body, soul, and spirit—to His service. Let us surrender all to Him. When as a triumphant company we are privileged to acknowledge Christ as our Redeemer, casting our crowns at His feet and crying, “Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb that was slain and lives again,” we shall understand that all the privileges and benefits and blessings which we enjoyed in this world came through Christ’s sacrifice in our behalf.

Is it possible that there is any one, young or old, who really feels that he is making a sacrifice in giving his life to God? Is it possible that we do not understand that Christ made an entire sacrifice—body, soul, and spirit—that we might come into possession of that life which measures with the life of the Eternal? In return for His infinite sacrifice, He requires of us a whole sacrifice—body, soul, and spirit, the willing and the doing. If we will to do, we can do; and if we do His will, we shall know by experience that His doctrine is truth. Thus we are built up in the most holy faith.
