#LAAccess Reflections – Romans 12 by @lizzyermakova

Good morning dear family!

Romans 12 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. Sorry for not being able to share with you yesterday. Thank God that it’s never too late to share God’s word.

Please let’s read these verses together once again:

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:1‭-‬2 NIV

I see it as a big honour to be able to sacrifice our lives to God. God doesn’t needs us to be God, but He loves us that’s why He wants us close. He wishes only best for us, His view at our lives is wide and complete exactly that’s why His wish/will is the best for our lives, so it’s a great honour for us to complete this will whatever it is. Let’s seek for it and achieve it.

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Romans 12:6‭-‬8 NIV

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Romans 12:12 NIV

I pray that none of us lose gifts that God put in us with the birth from above through the Holy spirit.
