TRANSFORMED Romans 12:1-2 Matt Garvin July 31, 2016

Paul had a ______________________________ for everything he wrote. (The Apostle Paul's) missionary work must be conceived not simply in terms of a traveling evangelist offering people a new religious experience, but of an ambassador for a king-in-waiting, establishing cells of people loyal to this new king, and ordering their lives according to His story, His symbols, and His praxis, and their minds according to His truth. N.T. Wright Romans 12:1-2 NIV Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

All that we do is a ______________________________ to who He is and what He has done. __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________ The Christian is someone who __________________ their own life. __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________

Romans 12:1-2 speaks of presenting our bodies as living sacrifices. The apostle Paul says this is our spiritual act of worship. So we see that worship is not a song; it is not an instrument; it is not a voice; it is not a fad; and it is not an industry. It is a lifestyle. Jonathan Falwell Worship is a _________________________________. __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________

We are called to a different way of being human. We are called to live from _______________ and not _______________. __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________

The Christian Vocation is to be in prayer, in the Spirit, at the place where the world is in pain, and as we embrace that vocation, we discover it to be the way of following Christ, shaped according to His messianic vocation to the cross, with arms outstretched, holding on simultaneously to the pain of the world and the love of God.
