(Talk) A Gospel Community (Romans 1:1-12:1)

As we begin our series, looking at how the gospel transforms our community, we took a whirlwind tour through Romans, looking at sin, wrath, faith, grace and the new people God is creating. After all of this, Romans 12:1 says “therefore,” in view of everything that has come before, this is how we are to live as Christians. In view of God’s mercies, it’s reasonable and rational to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. This is the first idea Romans 12 calls us to grasp as a gospel community: our entire lives, 24/7, 360 degrees, are to be lived in worship to God.
