You Are What You Love
March 5, 2017
*The exercise on reading Romans is from Sinclair Ferguson’s book 'Devoted to God.' The story and summary of the film 'Stalker' were from Jamie Smith’s 'You Are What You Love.' Romans 12:1-3 1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. 3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. "You are already a living sacrifice - the question is to which God?" -Rankin Wilbourne
