Romans We are all living sacrifices… so in Christ we who are many form one body…. When Saul was renewed he became Paul — he was renewed, he was transformed into a new person in Christ Jesus; a miraculous change in a matter of days Acts 9. Have you felt this change in you before? Was it sustained Psalm ? Have you felt it more than once? We give ourselves negative labels because we get lost in the world. We get lost in what we have been told. We get lost in the times we may have failed or succeeded but not as much as we wanted to perfectionism, criticism.
We get lost in the bad things we may have done or the good things we did not do. In Christ you can be found again; your sins are forgiven and your spirit is made new. To You. Tell me lest I forget who I am to You. That I belong to You. Tell me once again who I am to You. Who I am to You.
For He shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders. A greatly loved person. In allowing your confidence in Christ fill your life your self esteem will rise and your new label will be given… or your true label will be revealed.
When this happens you will be open to what God has to tell you and will be willing to follow when He calls upon you to utilize your spiritual gifts. Will — The mental faculty by which one deliberately chooses a course of action; self control, self discipline; A desire, purpose, or determination; Deliberate intention or wish; bearing or attitude towards others: full of good will. What does it mean to conform or transform your will to His? What has to take place in your life for this to happen? Or what is holding you back? Romans 3 — 8 speaks of humbleness and allowing each other to do what each of us is called to do.
Why do you suppose this comes right after the excitement of verse 2?
