Discussion for Romans 12

    A sacrifice is that which is utterly devoted to God. The christian walk is therefore, a living devotion to God. This may be accomplished through transformation. The believer experiences this state of transformation by the operation of the Holy Spirit's renewing of mind, making possible for the believer to prove what is good, acceptable and the perfect will of God
  • Maureen
    I think that this is our opportunity to wholly give ourselves to God and still remain alive. Usually when a sacrifice is made, an animal is killed and the body is presented. It is reasonable for us to give ourselves a sacrifice and continue being alive.

    the lord is well pleased with what you have done and wants you to teach other how love the lord with all there heart and mind may god continue to bless you
  • Deaconess Karen Talbert
    I think that Paul is explaining to us how we as Christian are suppose to live. Verses 17 and 21 bring back memories to me as a young child, how it was " to get even" with those who mistreated me. I was raised in the church, but also as verse 2 states " and be not confirmed to this world" I was to an extent. But praise the Lord, by His love, Grace and mercy my mind has been transformed.

Help me to be Born Again every moment of my life for you are Holy help me to be Holy like you. Praise you Jesus and i will worship you alone for you are worthy to be praise. Let me kneel down and serve you. Amen
