A Living Sacrifice
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
-Romans 12:1-2 (ESV)
Kevin Rogers encouraged us Sunday to delve into Romans 12:1-2 as great inspiration to help us explore what His will means for our lives. We were challenged and reminded that God’s way isn’t often easy to understand especially in light of difficult circumstances. We know God’s will is good for us even when we don’t understand it because of how He demonstrated His love for us. This should motivate us to live sacrificially.
We pray you will reflect on this this week and you join us at CCC next Sunday as we worship and learn together.

“I think we have two choices in the face of such big beauty (the universe): terror or awe. And this is precisely why we attempt to chart God, because we want to be able to predict Him, to dissect Him, to carry Him around in our dog and pony show. We are too proud to feel awe and to fearful to feel terror. We reduce Him to math so we don’t have to fear Him, and yet the Bible tells us fear is the appropriate response, that it is the beginning of wisdom.” Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz, page 204

“I believe that the greatest trick of the devil is not to get us into some sort of evil but rather have us wasting time. This is why the devil tries so hard to get Christians to be religious. If he can sink a man’s mind into habit, he will prevent his heart from engaging God.” Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz, page 13
