“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:1-2 )
People make a decision that involves an opportunity cost; when we say yes to one choice, were saying no to countless other options. The question we instinctively answer each time is, What gives me the most benefit?
In response to God’s mercy, the only choice is to devote ourselves wholeheartedly to Him. We chose to follow a person, the One who loves us, forgives us, and calls us His own. When we say yes to God each moment, we choose a lifestyle that reflects Christ’s values. Let God transform us as our minds focus on God’s truth. The result of saying yes to God each moment is the incalculable benefit of knowing and following God’s perfect will for our lives. We join hands with Him to walk on the mountains and in the valley of the adventure of life.
