A Sermon on Romans 12:1-2
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. (ESV)
Reasonable service - what is it? The spiritual over against the external; the legalistic and the ascetic; using our bodies to the glory of God.
