My favorite episode this week: Romans 12.
📚 Stay Free. 💪
(Romans 12:1-2) And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Observation: After explaining the purpose of the Gospel, God's amazing grace, and our ability to share this Good News with others, it is easy to see why Paul would plead with us to live clean lives. He is almost begging us not to get entangled with the sins that will cause old wounds to come back or to create new ones. We have been set free so we can be free. So let's stay that way.
Application: See God's Word as a manual for freedom. Anything God says to stay away from or to run toward is for our benefit.
