Romans 12:1-21 (CSB)
Therefore, brothers and sisters, in view of the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your true worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.
For by the grace given to me, I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he should think. Instead, think sensibly, as God has distributed a measure of faith to each one. Now as we have many parts in one body, and all the parts do not have the same function, in the same way we who are many are one body in Christ and individually members of one another. According to the grace given to us, we have different gifts: If prophecy, use it according to the proportion of one’s faith; if service, use it in service; if teaching, in teaching; if exhorting, in exhortation; giving, with generosity; leading, with diligence; showing mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be without hypocrisy. Detest evil; cling to what is good. Love one another deeply as brothers and sisters. Take the lead in honoring one another. Do not lack diligence in zeal; be fervent in the Spirit; serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer. Share with the saints in their needs; pursue hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud; instead, associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own estimation.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Give careful thought to do what is honorable in everyone’s eyes. If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for God’s wrath, because it is written, Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord. But If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. For in so doing you will be heaping fiery coals on his head. Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.

INTRODUCTION

Most of us have heard the term, "GAMECHANGER". A gamechanger is something that serves as a catalyst that changes the landscape of things. Throughout history, there have been some notable gamechangers (The invention of the wheel, the lightbulb, the telephone, the internet, etc.), but nothing compares to the gamechanger of God's saving grace...
BIG IDEA

GOD CAN BE TRUSTED BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING, AND HIS WAYS ARE HIGHER THAN OURS.
Today, let's look at 3 gamechanging aspects of God's grace...
1. BECAUSE OF GRACE, I HAVE A NEW ________________.

[A] A __________ to glorify God.

See Romans 12:1

[B] A __________ to live with the Kingdom in view.

See Romans 12:2
2. BECAUSE OF GRACE, I AM GIVEN NEW ___________.

[A] _______ Completely of God and from God.

See Romans 12:3

[B] _______ to impact the world.

See Romans 12:4-8

[C] _______ that unites believers.

[D] _______ that is greater than any other _______.
3. BECAUSE OF GRACE, I AM CALLED TO A NEW _________.

[A] The _______ of mimicking Christ.

See Romans 12:9-16

[B] The _______ of winning the world to Jesus.

See Romans 12:17-21
RESPONSE...

How do I respond to what I have heard today?...

TRUST GOD AND FOLLOW HIM...
1. If you are not saved, be saved today!
2. Review God's Goodness & Grace.
3. Embrace your purpose, power and practice.

What would it truly look like if every believer truly embraced Romans 12?
