Scripture Reading: A Living Sacrifice
What is our response to God’s grace?
What does it mean to live in a way that pleases God?
In this first of a two-part series, Pastor Bob begins to address these questions. He explains how we are a living sacrifice to God and defines what it means to think with sober judgment. We are to use the brains God has given us and exercise discretion and discernment on all matters crucial to the betterment of our community, our nation, and our world. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us. Paul encourages us to celebrate and utilize those God-given gifts to the best of our abilities. We the church must lay our minds and our hearts open to the piercing love of God who bids us to live as disciples of Christ.
