    This means that,we should at all times keep ourselves holy, and as an instrument of use by God and as means of sacrifice to be offer to God.
  • Kgaogelo Makgopa for verse 1
    Paul is saying to us is not about you alone,God the creator of all things should be given adoration for who we are in the Kingdom,that's why he's pleading with us to give back to the giver of our lives.

  • Adebiyi oluwatobiloba for verse 1
    The buttom line is that u don't own your body,so you should live your life for God at all time. Your physical and spiritual apperance should always show that you are for God for him to recognise you as his own also.
  • AL
    Action on verse 9 is mandatory for the fulfillment of the other principals in living this life
  • James for verse 7
    We all within the body of Christ are called to minister truth in Christ.
  • Mike nagiar for verse 2
    One thing is clear if our mind is not renewed,out of it would come all sorts of human reasoning,all kinds of old thougths all kind of negativity, all kinds of guilt and condemnation,and all this is connected to our emotions, our emotions they carry a lot of wounds. Thats why the Bible writes our minds is the battle ground where the enemy has access.The enemy's goal is to remind you of the old you,this is where the confusion starts.But God says you are a new creation,old things have passed.the answer we find in Ephesians 1:17 The moment we start identifying who we are and we recieve God's knowledge through spiritual understanding,it becomes a revelation, we acknowledge our oneness with Christ Jesus.Having the mind of Christ would confirm our newness , new mind,new creation
  • KRYSTLE for verse 19
    This verse and my strong faith is having to be with me on this today for sure.
  • Duncan L
    This passage is all about maturity in the knowledge of the Most High GOD because the Psalmist asked in chapter 119 verse 9 of Psalms , how can young man keep his way pure? By living according to his word. Really its to live according to words amen.

    Romans chapter 12 is a profound and powerful chapter. God's word enlightens, chastens, uplifts and strengthens the people of God. Romans 12:16 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly.... Have you ever picked up the dirt from the earth? Place it in your hand and blow on it. It literally disappears in a blink of an eye. That's why we should not think highly of ourselves. We are nothing but dust. Dust we are and dust we shall return. Instead, we are to humble ourselves before God, as Christ humbled Himself and took on sinful flesh to condemn sin in the flesh. We should have Christ's spirit dwelling in us that we be able to walk in this present world without going after the world and all the things Satan is offering. Remember, he offered all the kingdoms to Jesus if He would just bow. Jesus refused. Just as we too must refuse.

    roman's 12 to me has all the tool's of the spirit to obtain, for growth in christ, almost like we are without exscuse, to say we have an exscuse, or to justify our action's, we need to put on the spirit of Christ and therefore not have any dealing's with the world, does that mean no TV or music or time with anybody that's all in the world, I think not if we then have what the spirit is called in galation self controll we are not bothered by these thing's GOD help us!
  • Charles dorsey for verse 2
    Romans 12-2 is speaking of a made up mind to allow th
    Power of god to take full control of their mind, body,
    And inner spirit. There is also a second step to obtaining a renewed and transformed mind,body and spirit. We a a chosen. Generation, we have to allow our self to obtain god nature. We have to ask him to allow us to bear the fruits of his spirit and practice on how to deny ourselves in pur daily walk with him. Its a daily process but a process that bring results.
  • Lucky Agofure for verse 1
    Paul was actually talking to christians. There is the tendency that our bodies could be used to please the devil because of the corrupt world we are. There is the need for watchfullness and prayerfullness to ensure that will live the life that pleases God. A life in Christ is defferent from a life in sin. Therefore, it is very important we honor God with our bodies continously.
  • Samuel Martin for verse 2
    If you do not transform your mind you will never enter the kingdom of God with a worldly mindset.
  • BRENDA JOHNSON
    Romans 12:2, Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, Stop! Then I read it again. What is that good? Then I asked myself what is that good? It's being acceptable to God? It's being in the perfect will of God. But we have to prove it by renewing our mind, and be in the world but not of the world. And if we can prove that, that is what is that good. Amen.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 2
    This passage is about Christian maturity. We are not to be conformed to this world, but are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Love not the world, or the things of this world. All that is in the world, the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. The world and its lust will pass away, but whoever does the will of the Father shall abide forever. So abide in Christ, for He is the vine, and we are the branches. We can only bear fruit as we allow the Holy Spirit to control us, and produce the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, meekness, self control, against such there is no law.

  • Janifer
    What GOD is saying to us, is that we all are the same, that we should love one another; no matter who or what they have done in life. GOD is love.
  • Tonia
    When reading this chapter, it's telling us to be humble, love one another and do good, in other words, be like Christ. Lord help me to be just like you in all my ways and thoughts.
  • Mary ward

  • Charles.
    This falls under commandments 5-10, we must love each other no matter what they do to us.
  • Mattie
    We need to obey the word it is right by its self
  • Butch
    Folks,you need to watch taking credit for what the blood of Christ does for you, his blood keeps us clean not our works (I John 1:7-9). God satisfied himself in the blood of his son, the only thing we can do is obey his will.

    To all the children of God.

    First as a child of God you should keep your body holy so that you can be acceptable to God.

    Your body is the temple of God so you must keep it holy.

    Do not waste your energies in pursuit of worldly riches and fleshly desires.

    Material wealth is nothing compared to Spiritual wealth.

    Dear brothers and sisters, material wealth is just but temporary, yet

    Spiritual wealth lasts for eternity.

    You should rather transform yourself by renewing your mind by having Faith in God , through Jesus Christ.

    And reflect God's Glory by proving what is good, and acceptable, and perfect according to the Will of God.

    You should humble yourself and should not think of yourself more highly than you ought to think.

    You should think soberly according to the amount of Faith given to you by God.

    As we have many members in one body and all members have different functions:

    So we are many and we are one body in Christ, and everyone has his/her own function.

    We have different gifts according to the Grace given to us,

    If you are into prophesy, you should prophesy according to the amount of Faith given to you by God.

    If you are into ministry, you should concentrate on ministering.

    If you are a teacher, you should concentrate on teaching.

    If you exhort, you should concentrate on exhortation.

    If you give, you should do it with simplicity.

    If you are a ruler, you should rule with diligence and you should fear God.

    If you show mercy, you should do it with cheerfulness.

    When you love, you should love without dissimulation.

    You should love without deceitfulness.

    Abhor that which is evil, and cleave to that which is good.

    Show brotherly love to one another with kind affection.

    Prefer one another in honour. Regard one another with respect.

    Do not be slothful in doing God's work.

    You should be zealous in spirit when serving God.

    You should do God's work with all your spirit.

    You should rejoice in Hope.

    You should be patient in tribulation.

    You should remain constant in prayer.

    You should be given to hospitality and you should give to the necessity of those who spread the Word of God.

    Bless those who persecute you. Do not curse them.

    Rejoice with them that rejoice.

    Weep with them that weep.

    Treat each other with mutual respect.

    Do not mind high things. Do not concentrate on worldly pursuits and fleshly desires.

    Condescend to men of low estate. Be humble, and lower yourself to men of inferior status.

    This may be inferior spiritual ,moral, intellectual or material status.

    Do not be wise in your own eyes and do not have an over exaggerated sense of self importance.

    Do not compensate a man evil for evil.

    You should be transparent and honest in your dealings with other people.

    If it is possible, and if it is within your control, live peacefully with everyone.

    Dearly beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather control your wrath:

    for it is written, Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, says the Lord.

    Therefore if your enemy is hungry, feed him.

    If your enemy is thirsty, give him drink:

    For in so doing you will cause a feeling of shame and guilt to swell in his head.

    Do not overcome evil with evil, but rather

    Overcome evil with good.

    May the Grace of God come to you, through Jesus Christ, the Messiah, in abundance. Amen!
