“The Secret to Spiritual Renewal“

“The Secret to Spiritual Renewal“
Romans 6:13; 12:2

Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

Romans 12:1-2
1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Are a person who wants to walk with God but you’re having a tough time?

Are you too bad to be forgiven?

Certain conditions (despair, regret, hurt, pain, etc.) manifest the need for spiritual renewal.

C.S. Lewis in, “The Problem of Pain,” says
“We can ignore pleasure. But pain gets our attention.”

Spiritual Renewal is happening as we return to church to recover from grief and isolation, to worship, pray and fellowship.

The dictionary defines “renewal” as:
The replacement or repair of something.

 

The secret to spiritual renewal involves two steps.

1. The first step is Offering (Yielding, KJV) Yourselves to God.

2. The second step to spiritual renewal is Offering your Members unto God.

The whole story of your life can be written in two volumes.

Volume 1 would be called “What I was like before I knew Jesus Christ.”
Volume 2 is “What my life is like since Christ came into my life.”
