I did not preach the complete message in either of our two worship services this past Sunday. I actually had four points. But I only got to three of them. Here is the complete outline from Sunday’s message:

Title: “The Call to a Surrendered Life”

Text: Romans 12:1-2

Theme: Christian discipleship

Point: What God wants from you is you!


I. The reason for the surrendered life: “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God” (12:1).

II. The reality of the surrendered life: “to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship” (12:1).

    A. The cost is total.
    B. The cost is personal.

    C. The cost is legitimate

III. The requirements of the surrendered life: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (12:2).

    A. Stop being conformed.

    B. Start being transformed.

IV. The result of the surrendered life: “that by testing you may discern what is the will of GOd, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (12:2).
