Romans ~ So What?
Rom. 12:1-2
The first eleven chapters of Romans explain that the gospel is the power of God
to save. Sin is the problem. Christ is the solution. Faith that is active brings the
sinner out of sin and to God through Christ. This offer of salvation is extended
to Jews and Gentiles. The gospel is for all.
So What?
What does this mean to me, about my life today? It means …
I should present my body to God. He made my body. He is the owner. I only
occupy this body for a little while. During my earthly sojourn, my body should
be applied to purposes in keeping with the Maker. What I do on a daily basis
should comport with the “holy and acceptable” will of God. I worship God, not
only through specific acts with other Christians. I extend to Him praise and glory
by not conforming to the world, but by being transformed by the gospel of
Christ. With a mind informed, renewed and refreshed by the will of God, my life
should express what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12 begins the section of Romans that punctuates the practical, the
simple “way of life” instruction the gospel of Christ leads us to.
Listen carefully: 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.
