I did not preach the complete message in either of our two worship services this past Sunday. I actually had four points. But I only got to three of them. Here is the complete outline from Sunday’s message:
Title: “The Call to a Surrendered Life”
Text: Romans 12:1-2
Theme: Christian discipleship
Point: What God wants from you is you!
I. The reason for the surrendered life: “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God” (12:1).
II. The reality of the surrendered life: “to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship” (12:1).
A. The cost is total.
B. The cost is personal.
C. The cost is legitimate
III. The requirements of the surrendered life: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (12:2).
A. Stop being conformed.
B. Start being transformed.
IV. The result of the surrendered life: “that by testing you may discern what is the will of GOd, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (12:2).
