In the book of Romans, Paul teaches that followers of Jesus should consider themselves to be Living Sacrifices, treating the whole of our lives as worship to God. In this series we’re going to unpack that idea by working through Romans 12, considering what it means for us as we seek to love and serve one another, build deep and genuine community, navigate challenging seasons of life, and be a blessing to our city.
It’s a well-known idea that we become what we behold. The things to which we give our time, attention and worship have the power to shape our thinking and our lives. In the first talk of our new series, Andy looks at Romans 12:1-2 and considers what it means for us to have our minds renewed and transformed by God.
All of us have different gifts. It can be tempting to value certain gifts and skills more than others, but every gift is needed if the church is to flourish. In this talk, David looks at Paul’s picture of the church as a body, and considers the importance of humility and service.
