(7-13-09) WORD OF THE DAY


I therefore beg of you, please, brethren, through the instrumentality of the aformentioned mercies of God, by a once-for-all presentation to place your bodies at the disposal of God, a sacrifice, a living one, a holy one, well pleasing, your rational, sacred service, [rational, in that this is performed by the exercise of the mind] .

And stop assuming an outward expression that does not come from within you and is not representative of what you are in your inner being but is patterned after this age; but change your outward expression to one that comes from within and is representative of your inner being, by the renewing of your mind, resulting in your putting to the test what is the will of God, the good and well-pleasing and complete will, and having found that it meets specifications, place your approval upon it.

Romans 12:1, 2

Kenneth S. Wuest The New Testament (an expanded translation)
