ANCHOR 6: Allow God to make the transformation changes He wants to make and stop trying to make them on my own.
ROMANS 12:1-2 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
1. What changes have you tried to make in your life in your own strength? How did that work or how is that working for you? 2. Considering what God has done for you, how grateful are you, how dependent are you upon Him? In what ways does your life reflect your gratitude to God? 3. Ask the Holy Spirit how He would have you offer your life, your mind, even your body, as a living and holy sacrifice to worship Him in a way that He finds acceptable? How is that different than what you are doing or how you are living today?
