Jonathan Edward's Northampton, Massachusetts church in 1734, observers said, "It pleased God...to display his free and sovereign mercy in the conversion of a great multitude of souls in a short space of time, turning them from a formal, cold, and careless profession of Christianity, to the lively exercise of every Christian grace, and the powerful practice of our holy religion."
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God.”
Overview of Romans:

Romans 1-11—explanation of the Gospel
Romans 12-16— our response to the Gospel
There is an answer— Romans 3:21-28

1. The sacrificial death of Jesus (Romans 3:5) God’s love and justice meet at the cross.

2. Forgiveness and being reconciled to God. (Romans 5:1)

3. The power of the Holy Spirit— the presence of the Holy Spirit to live a new life. (Romans 8:9)
“I appeal to you…to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”
“Do not be conformed to this world.”
“be transformed by the renewal of your mind.”
A few observations:

It means being changed. Where we get our word metamorphosis.

It is a passive imperative so the change is performed by God in us.

It is present tense so it is to be continuous.

It is not an automatic process…you must respond.

The response is singular “renewal of your mind”
“that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

“Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (NLT)
