Living Sacrifice 26

Proper application of the emblems of communion (Joh 15:1-12, Joh 6:35). "Abide" = fellowship. "Bear much fruit" = proving to be disciples. Result is inner joy and love toward others -- the work. The woman at the well conversation instructs us on worship (Joh 4:5-42). The woman's idea of worship was a place, traditional, superiority (Joh 4:20). Denominations represent division; Corinth is the first group written about. Jesus corrects the woman (Joh 4:21-24). Worship must include the filling of the Spirit.Everything that we do can be an act of worship if we are obedient to the Word and filled with the Spirit. Subordinating ourselves to God's plan is "good and acceptable" (Rom 12:2).

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.
