Thrive Pathway Activity 31

Memorize and Understand Romans 12: 1-2

Throughout the book of Romans, Paul lays out a very reasoned discussion of the gospel and the Christian faith.  Paul begins Chapter 12 with “Therefore,” meaning because of the gospel. The gospel is the good news of God’s plan for you, and you should respond to God in this way;  “…offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God." This does not mean just going to church on Sunday, reading the Bible, or saying prayers before dinner. It means living all of your everyday life seeking God’s will in your life and then obeying His call. Living a life as a sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, also means there will be things in the world around you that you should avoid.  “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind...” Living a life of sacrifice means your faith, challenges, daily schedule, and activities are based on your love for God, which should be growing all the time. How is your faith and obedience growing today in a different way than it was six months ago?

Scripture:

Romans 12:1-2
“Therefore, my brothers, in view of God’s mercy, offer your body as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, and in this way you will know God’s will---His good, pleasing, and perfect will.”
