Renewed Minds Naturally Bring Reasonable Service
Romans 12:1-2 (KJB) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
The Apostle Paul is encouraging believers, then and now, to renew their minds. The renewing of the mind means dumping of the accumulated trash of this world and the filling of the Spirit of God into the mind and heart. This filling is a permanent or perpetual upload of the nature and wisdom of God.
Reasonable service begins with the power and presence of God. It is a service that savors God and places Him at the forefront of all things. It is selfless service to the will of God that He puts on the life of every soul. It is the only service that can satisfy expectations He places on each soul.
Get busy; you have a job to do to honor and glorify God!
Reasonable service is to savor and celebrate the power and presence of God at work in your life and heart. Obedience to the will of God satisfies His will and sows seeds of the gospel to reach other souls with His message of grace and mercy.
