<590> Thesis: Serving the Lord requires timely and legitimate action. Introduction: As Paul began to expand the implications of his dual-pronged foundation for "Life", he initially focused upon the "second prong" -- unhypocritical love for fellow-members of the Church (12:9-10). In 12:11 he turned back to the "first prong" -- a genuine commitment to God. It is this first prong that we will be looking into this evening.
