This week at (sola)s we unpacked Romans 12:1-13. Last week we examined the first two verses of chapter 12, exploring the idea of what it means to be a “living sacrifice”. This week we continued in this vein, asking the question, “What does a living sacrifice look like?” What are the marks of a life that has been transformed? From verses 3-13 we saw 7 marks of a transformed life: 1) humility, 2) unity, 3) purpose, 4) love, 5) fervency, 6) endurance, and 7) generosity. We finished by seeing that these fruits grow from renewing our minds daily in the gospel. Jesus was the one who enabled us to bear these fruits, and he set a perfect example of every one of these marks. We will be humble, united, purposeful, loving, fervent, enduring, and generous as we look to Jesus and the gospel.
