    This is a very important chapter because it's talking to believers, the instructions here is how to live daily and how to conduct ourselves. Whenever we face trials and tribulations he's giving us the way we should be with non believers and by doing what the chapter says we can make people come to Christ that is what we are called to do.

    I think Romans 12 is talking about how GOD wants us to wait for his conformation if we want to do anything.
