Our Reasonable Service

This is a message I first put together and preached in Guyana, but was so moved by the importance of it that I wanted to preach it to our home congregation as well.  In this sermon, I go through each clause of this verse, which is the transition point in the epistle to the Romans from the doctrinal to the practical.  The majority of time is spent exhorting us, as Christian people, to present our bodies as living sacrifices unto God.  If we are truly born again, and have an appropriate gratitude towards our God for all that He has done for us in Christ, we will not think anything that He requires of us to be unreasonable, but any and every sacrifice will prove worthwhile, if it serves the end of His glory and advances His kingdom.
