Sunday 4/8/18 Sermon Discussion Questions
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.\
Romans 12:1-2 MSG
So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life--your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life--and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:2 ISV
Do not be conformed to this world, but continually be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God's will is—what is proper, pleasing, and perfect.
Seeing those three translations above, is your life being transformed by God? Do you see yourself changed in any way?
James 1:22-25 tells us to be doers of the Word, not just hearers. What good does knowing everything God says, when you will not allow His Word to change your life?
Jesus is trying to warn us in Matthew 7:24-27, when He says we should not only hear His words, but should also obey them. What does that mean to you? Does that affect you in any way?
