  • of what it meansfor us to be a worshiper
  • 00:01:21.597 --> 00:01:23.465
  • for us to be a worshiperwithout restraint.
  • 00:01:23.465 --> 00:01:25.767
  • without restraint.First -- starting Romans 12:1.
  • 00:01:25.767 --> 00:01:27.569
  • First -- starting Romans 12:1."Therefore, I urge you,
  • 00:01:27.569 --> 00:01:29.404
  • "Therefore, I urge you,brothers and sisters,
  • 00:01:29.404 --> 00:01:31.640

  • this is your trueand proper worship.
  • 00:01:42.017 --> 00:01:42.818
  • and proper worship.Do not conform
  • 00:01:42.818 --> 00:01:44.620
  • Do not conformto the pattern of this world,
  • 00:01:44.620 --> 00:01:46.688
  • to the pattern of this world,but be transformed
  • 00:01:46.688 --> 00:01:48.690
  • but be transformedby the renewing of your mind.
  • 00:01:48.690 --> 00:01:49.858
  • by the renewing of your mind.Then you will be able
  • 00:01:49.858 --> 00:01:51.760
  • Then you will be ableto test and approve
  • 00:01:51.760 --> 00:01:53.095
  • to test and approvewhat God's will is -
  • 00:01:53.095 --> 00:01:54.763
  • what God's will is -His good, pleasing

  • His good, pleasingand perfect will."
  • 00:01:56.298 --> 00:01:57.766
  • and perfect will."Now, to understand the power
  • 00:01:57.766 --> 00:01:58.267
  • Now, to understand the powerof everything
  • 00:01:58.267 --> 00:01:59.434
  • of everythingthat's being said here,
  • 00:01:59.434 --> 00:02:00.169
  • that's being said here,the first word
  • 00:02:00.169 --> 00:02:01.436
  • the first wordis really important.
  • 00:02:01.436 --> 00:02:03.238
  • is really important."Therefore," meaning Paul
  • 00:02:03.238 --> 00:02:05.741
  • "Therefore," meaning Paulis linking his future argument
  • 00:02:05.741 --> 00:02:07.042
  • is linking his future argumentto all of the past things
  • 00:02:07.042 --> 00:02:08.443
  • to all of the past thingsthat he's said in Romans.
  • 00:02:08.443 --> 00:02:09.511
  • that he's said in Romans.Therefore is referring
  • 00:02:09.511 --> 00:02:12.381
  • Therefore is referringto all of Romans 1-11,
  • 00:02:12.381 --> 00:02:13.482
  • to all of Romans 1-11,chapters 1-11,
  • 00:02:13.482 --> 00:02:14.349
  • chapters 1-11,where we talk about
  • 00:02:14.349 --> 00:02:15.784
  • where we talk aboutthe mercy of God,
  • 00:02:15.784 --> 00:02:17.052
  • the mercy of God,the grace of God,
  • 00:02:17.052 --> 00:02:18.787
  • the grace of God,salvation through faith,
  • 00:02:18.787 --> 00:02:19.788
  • salvation through faith,the faithfulness of God,
  • 00:02:19.788 --> 00:02:21.390
  • the faithfulness of God,that God is a covenant-keeping,
  • 00:02:21.390 --> 00:02:22.224
  • that God is a covenant-keeping,promise-making,

  • promise-making,promise-keeping God.
  • 00:02:24.793 --> 00:02:26.795
  • promise-keeping God.And then, we turn to Romans 12,
  • 00:02:26.795 --> 00:02:27.529
  • And then, we turn to Romans 12,and he says, "Hey,
  • 00:02:27.529 --> 00:02:28.597
  • and he says, "Hey,in light of all that,
  • 00:02:28.597 --> 00:02:30.365
  • in light of all that,now, therefore,"
  • 00:02:30.365 --> 00:02:31.900
  • now, therefore,"so there's the broad spectrum
  • 00:02:31.900 --> 00:02:32.734
  • so there's the broad spectrumof what happens
  • 00:02:32.734 --> 00:02:33.302
  • of what happensin the therefore,
  • 00:02:33.302 --> 00:02:33.802
  • in the therefore,but there's also
  • 00:02:33.802 --> 00:02:35.571
  • but there's alsoa narrow spectrum of what
  • 00:02:35.571 --> 00:02:36.572
  • a narrow spectrum of whathe's referring to
  • 00:02:36.572 --> 00:02:37.206
  • he's referring toin the therefore,
  • 00:02:37.206 --> 00:02:37.706
  • in the therefore,which is found
  • 00:02:37.706 --> 00:02:39.608
  • which is foundin the last verse of Romans 11.
  • 00:02:39.608 --> 00:02:40.809
  • in the last verse of Romans 11.Let me read it for you.
  • 00:02:40.809 --> 00:02:42.211
  • Let me read it for you.This is what it says,
  • 00:02:42.211 --> 00:02:43.779
  • This is what it says,in the Great Doxology,
  • 00:02:43.779 --> 00:02:45.080
  • in the Great Doxology,says this in Romans 11:36:
  • 00:02:45.080 --> 00:02:48.350
  • says this in Romans 11:36:"For from Him and through Him
  • 00:02:48.350 --> 00:02:52.621
  • "For from Him and through Himand for Him are all things.

  • To Him be the glory forever!Amen."
  • 00:02:56.325 --> 00:02:57.559
  • Amen."So from this one verse,
  • 00:02:57.559 --> 00:02:58.894
  • So from this one verse,I want you to understand today,
  • 00:02:58.894 --> 00:02:59.561

  • to ask those questionsand to seek answers
  • 00:03:08.737 --> 00:03:09.738
  • and to seek answersfor those questions.
  • 00:03:09.738 --> 00:03:11.873

  • It's Old Testament language,going back to
  • 00:15:03.618 --> 00:15:05.420
  • going back tothe sacrificial system
  • 00:15:05.420 --> 00:15:06.087
  • the sacrificial systemof the Old Testament,
  • 00:15:06.087 --> 00:15:06.888

  • where people would comeand they would sacrifice
  • 00:15:08.089 --> 00:15:10.758

  • goats and bulls and lambsto atone for their sin.
  • 00:15:12.660 --> 00:15:13.061

  • So you say,"Well, what does it mean

  • "Well, what does it meanto be a living sacrifice?

  • of sacrificesin the Old Testament.
  • 00:15:22.003 --> 00:15:22.837
  • in the Old Testament.There's a sacrifice
  • 00:15:22.837 --> 00:15:24.372
  • There's a sacrificeof atonement,
  • 00:15:24.372 --> 00:15:26.407
  • of atonement,to cover for our sin,
  • 00:15:26.407 --> 00:15:28.142

  • 00:15:28.142 --> 00:15:29.143
  • and there is a sacrificeof thanksgiving.
  • 00:15:29.143 --> 00:15:31.112

  • 00:15:34.682 --> 00:15:36.517
  • for all-timethe sacrifice of atonement,
  • 00:15:36.517 --> 00:15:37.452
  • the sacrifice of atonement,so you don't have to come
  • 00:15:37.452 --> 00:15:38.987
