Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will: Romans 12:1&2
What would happen if we started to live out the bible verses we place on coffee mugs and bumper stickers.
In Romans 11 Paul addresses both Jews and Gentiles. The Jews are they very people who Christ came to redeem, but they rejected him. The Gentiles who were rejected by society, were so kindly grafted in. Paul evens the playing field, but reminding us to view God’s mercy above all of this.
” In view of God’s mercy”, whether you are Jew or Gentile, God out of his love for humanity extended us his mercy.
