Romans 12:1-2

“1 I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:1-2, NASB).

The new believer grows strong in his faith when he deepens his commitment to be like Christ. This commitment is clearly described in Romans 12:1-2 where God empowers His children to do His good, acceptable and perfect will.

Summary

It is critical that the believer early on integrates a daily consecration of his or her life to Jesus Christ into his personal schedule. "I am ready for whatever you want, Lord."

This dedication or commitment sets the whole tone for the day as he conforms his life according to that life commitment when he became a believer.

Upon so dedicating our lives to the Lord each day, we are ready and eager to do His will. He Himself is eager to work with us empowering us to do His will, that which is good, acceptable and perfect.
