14 Feb Mercy Makes An Appeal – Romans 12:1-2 – February 14, 2021
This passage sums up the life of those who have been justified by God through faith in Jesus Christ. Our goal is God’s glory as we do his will. The means to that goal is non-conformity to the world, transformation of our inner person through the renewing of our minds, and offering ourselves to God as living sacrifices. The motivation to live this way and for this purpose is the mercy of God shown to us in Christ. As those justified by the atoning sacrifice of Jesus, we are now living sacrifices to God to do his will. This is mercy’s appeal to us.
Grace Community church exists to build spiritually healthy people for ministry in the world. One of the ways that we pursue this mission is by gathering each Sunday for corporate worship, prayer, and biblical teaching. The corporate nature of this gathering is both edifying to the believer and a witness of God’s grace to the world. Sermon speaker is Scott Patty unless otherwise noted.
