The Will of God – Week 7
Taking the Lord’s Yoke (the Father’s Will) upon Us and Learning from Him to
Find rest for Our Souls
Rom. 12:1-5, 10-12
1 I exhort you therefore, brothers, through the compassions of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect.
3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to every one who is among you, not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think, but to think so as to be sober-minded, as God has apportioned to each a measure of faith.
4 For just as in one body we have many members, and all the members do not have the same function,
5 So we who are many are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
10 Love one another warmly in brotherly love; take the lead in showing honor one to another.
11 Do not be slothful in zeal, but be burning in spirit, serving the Lord.
12 Rejoice in hope; endure in tribulation; persevere in prayer.
