Some of my notes from this morning's message
Romans 12 (Amplified Bible)
- I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.
- Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

"According to their pasture, so were they filled. They were filled and their heart was lifted up. Therefore they have forgotten Me." (Hosea 13:6)
Indeed we serve a great God, one who wants nothing but the best for us. While stated in Jeremiah 29:11 (For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope), this is best summed up by John 3:16-17.
