Living Sacrifice 08

We have a unique standing with God that we share with His Son . Positional truth -- to be His brethren and of one another -- (1Co 15:22, Col 1:13, Rom 5:1-2, Rom 8:1). We are God's children (1Jo 3:1-3, Joh 1:12). God designed man to rule creation -- Jesus came to do that -- perfect human and God (Heb 2:6-11). We must will to do His will (Jam 4:7-11). Our value is the price that He paid. When Jesus comes "we shall be like Him"; Jesus is not ashamed of us because what we are about ready to become.

From Series: "Living Sacrifice (1995)"

Romans 12 and specifically Rom 12:1-2 is a pivot point between the doctrinal section and application of the book. This series methodically uses this passage to outline aspects or doctrines of the christian life -- God's provision and our prospect. Our lives can be acceptable to God if we progress on the path He intends. Living Sacrifice presents 12 doctrines: (1) redeeming time; (2) standing (positional truth); (3) self-presentation - availability; (4) approval; (5) service; (6) provision; (7) spiritual warfare; (8) conformity; (9) spiritual advance; (10) renewal; (11) divine guidance; (12) abundant life.
