Romans 12 is my favorite chapter in the book of Romans. It covers how you should act as a Christ-follower. It is a checklist of behaviors you can go through to see if you measure up. It first explains that our lives are meant to be a living sacrifice as a form of spiritual worship. Did you ever consider the way you live to be a form of worship to God? Our entire lives are to become so wrapped up in God that every move we make indicates our loyalty. He wants us to live for him becoming separated from the things of this world. 

Years ago, I set my mind to undoing anything I had come to believe wasn’t the truth, things I picked up on and was taught that may not conform to the teaching of the Bible. I considered the things I believed and measured them against biblical truths. You would be surprised at how many things we were taught aren’t true. You must ask yourself why you believe the way you believe and correct your thinking; that’s how you hold every thought captive. You will be surprised at how good it feels to be set free from all the lies. 

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. Romans 12:1-2
