Romans 12:16 ” Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud but willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.”

Paul’s writing here was straightforward and very direct. In three simple sentences he laid out the gist of the Gospel Message and the meaning of Sanctification. Jesus taught us to love one another, love our neighbor as ourselves, love our enemies, and to love God. When we live in harmony with one another there’s peace and fellowship and exactly what Jesus, the Prince of Peace, came extoling us to do. And as we allow the Holy Spirit to move in our lives, there is the sanctifying renewal of our minds called Sanctification, and with it comes humility…a realization that irrational arrogance, pride, and vanity is far from what Christ wants for us. We are not to seek great things for ourselves, (Jeremiah 45:5) but rather be a servant to all.
