“Reasonable Service – 101” …Blog.
*** (Romans 12:1-to-4) I therefore urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercies; to offer your bodies as ‘living sacrifices’ that are holy and pleasing to God; for this is the reasonable way for you to worship.
(Rom 12:2) 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.
(Rom 12:3) For by the grace given to me I ask every one of you; not to think of yourself more highly than you should think [Job 9:20]; rather to think of yourself with sober judgment on the measure of faith that God has assigned each of you.
(Rom 12:4) For we have many parts in one body; but these parts ‘do not’ all have the same function [office].
*** (Isaiah 6:8) And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said: –> Here am I: –> send me!
*** (Ephesians 2:10) For we are His workmanship; created in Christ Jesus to good works; which God has before ordained that we should -> walk in them.
Have ‘You’… “Read & Studied”: the book of Romans…? No, I did not ask how many times ‘You’ have read Romans. Do ‘You’ understand what “Service to Christ” really means…? As a member of “His Body & His Bride: the Church”… He called ‘You’ for His service! Most of us who have read the Old Testament; have an idea of the ‘Sacrificial System’: required by the Law of Moses. This teaching is also paralleled in the NT Hebrews. With few exceptions; the Sacrifice gave its life. The “Scapegoat”: Leviticus 16:7-to-22… one gave its life; and its blood was spilled on the other; which was let go into the wilderness. But in the NT, those truly Born Again… are called to be… “Living Sacrifices!” He, Christ Jesus has a use for ‘every’ member of His Body: the Church. Perhaps after reading this blog… spend some time and “Read & Reread”… “Romans 12:All”… and dissect what exactly was said. This will give ‘You” the… “Beginning of Understanding”… and pattern for Christian service to Christ Jesus! [Luke 24:44-to-48]
*** *** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out; our inner man is being renewed: day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]
*** (Isaiah 1:3-4) The ox knows his owner; and the ass his master's crib: but Israel does not know; My people does not consider.
(Isaiah 1:4) A sinful nation; a people laden with iniquity; a seed of evildoers; children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. [Isaiah 28:13]
*** (Proverbs 11:1) False balances are am abomination to the LORD Jehovah; but a just weight is His delight.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things hard to be understood, = which the unlearned and unstable = pervert, = as also they do the rest of the = SCRIPTURES, = to their own destruction.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘Not’ of us.
“What are the ‘Greater Works’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Micah 6:8) He has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?
Did ‘You’ notice “Romans 12:2”… what is the “Will of God”…? The Will of God = in each & every circumstance = “Always Equals” = His Holy Word! How can anything then be wrong… when it ‘Feels so Right’…? Simply because… “God Said SO!” Eve was tempted because she: ‘Doubted & Questioned’… what God had “Already Said! We finite human beings have no understanding of God [Isaiah 55:8-9]: unless He reveals Himself… by His Holy Word! The Holy Spirit takes His Holy Word… and enlightens our understanding. Satan has a ‘Field Day’ each day… as “MOST” Christians… do not “Read & Study”… their Bibles. How can ‘You’ know the “Will of GOD”… without knowing His Holy Word…? And one more time… don’t say ‘You’… “FEEL” that is what: God has for ‘You!’ Does God’s will mean that I drive a $397,000…“Lamborghini Aventador”… when I feel it should be? Especially when so many Christians go to bed ‘Hungry’…? I know it is “NOT”… because that Feeling: is nothing but… “Prideful Sinful Opulence!

(John 16:14) He will glorify Me [Jesus]; for He will receive of Mine and will announce it to you.
*** (Romans 8:9) But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit; if the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if ‘Anyone’ –: has “NOT” the Spirit of Christ; he is ‘None’ of His.

*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the LORD Jehovah; that I will send a “Famine” in the land; ‘Not’ a “Famine” of bread; ‘Nor’ a thirst for water; But of = “Hearing” [and Doing] = the Words of the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].

Ok, may I please ask ‘You’…? What is keeping ‘You’ from your “Reasonable Service” to your “Lord & Savior”…? If ‘You’ do not know His Holy Word; how then can ‘You’ be sure of “What ‘You’ are Doing” is His will…? How old will ‘You’ be in one year from now? How old will ‘You’ be one year from now… “If You Read & Study”… His Holy Word… “Daily?” Remember, in the English translation of the Bible… the Hebrew word Jehovah… is the English word… LORD!

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble than those of Thessalonica; in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind; and searched the Scriptures daily; to see if those things were so. [Or Not?]
