Show Notes

 Paul says in Romans 12:1, “Therefore I exhort you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a sacrifice – alive, holy, and pleasing to God – which is your reasonable service.” The gospel story and the identity we receive from it are the very mercies of God: His death covers my sin, His resurrection gives me hope in life, His covering gives me freedom and joy. Life in the kingdom of God, then, is a response to these realities. We present ourselves as a sacrifice in response to Christ’s sacrifice. Our sacrifice may be lived out in a variety of ways, but at the core it is a life given in service to God.
