First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Romans 12.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
– Historical — Paul talks about the new relationship Christians have with God and others because of Christ: worshiping God with their bodies, serving God with their spiritual gifts, and loving each other with Christ’s love.
– Doctrinal — God is the avenger of those who wrong us; we do not need to take vengeance ourselves (see verses 17-21).
– Inspirational — I need offer my body and mind to God as an act of worship: a living sacrifice with the care and attention and surrender of every Old Testament sacrifice (see verse 1).
