5 comments on “Be Transformed

  1. “The first unit in Romans discussed grace; the second unit discusses our response to grace. Thus, Paul is telling us that in response to God’s amazing grace, we are to offer ourselves as living sacrifices to God.”

    Amen. Perfectly and succinctly stated.

  2. Do you think that the command to be transformed is a passive imperative makes a difference? I bring that up to people, but I consistently get a “deer-in-the-headlight” look in response. Maybe it isn’t that important, but I sort of think it is. I believe it’s a call to the submission necessary for the transformation; as in, “Stop fighting God, and let Him transform you!”. I think it’s important, but I also get a lot of shrugs when I explain why I think this is important, like, “So what if it is?”. Anyway, if the command is to allow ourselves to be worked on, rather than a command to transform ourselves, doesn’t that more fit with the rest of Scripture? Or is everyone else right, and I’m missing a very basic point?

    • Matt I do not think you are the one missing the point, and I would add that this point being missed by so many explains quite a lot about what we see going on out there…
