The Great Exchange

“Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness (dedicated, consecrated), experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.
Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.” (Romans 12:1-2, TPT)

At the heart of reformation is the pursuit of transformation. It’s a response to Papa’s mercy and grace as an authentic ministry to him in worship. What pleases him is becoming what pleases and satisfies us as adopted sons. We surrender our lives for his in the greatest exchange anyone could ever experience.
