“The Will of God, Good, Acceptable and Perfect.”
I appeal to you brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the Will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1-2
This is part of the Apostle Paul’s message to the Believers in Rome. Notice that Paul’s demeanor, is one of exhortation or URGENCY. He is URGING his fellow believers to present their BODIES, which is their WHOLE LIFE, by God’s MERCIES, as a LIVING SACRIFICE and it should be HOLY and ACCEPTABLE to God, this is their SPIRITUAL WORSHIP, which is ANY ministry, that is carried out for God.
Then Paul URGES them to NOT be CONFORMED or to YIELD to this WORLD, but to be TRANSFORMED, or CHANGED by the RENEWING of their MINDS. They are NOT to LIVE by their FLESHLY DESIRES or to LIVE according to the WAYS of this EVIL WORLD. But they are to TURN AWAY FROM their SINFUL LIFE-STYLE, and ACCEPT and LIVE by the WAYS of the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD.
This TRANSFORMATION is a TOTAL CHANGE from the INSIDE OUT. And the MAIN part of this CHANGE is the MIND, which CONTROLS one’s ATTITUDES, THOUGHTS, FEELINGS and ACTIONS. This is an ONGOING TRANSFORMATION, which takes place as a BELIEVER, immerses themselves with the WORD of GOD, PRAYER, and FELLOWSHIP with other BELIEVERS, through this process, they are CONTINUALLY being TRANSFORMED.
This TRANSFORMATION will give them the ability to TEST and APPROVE that GOD’S WILL is GOOD, WELL-PLEASING, and PERFECT. And as the TRUE BELIEVER, MATURES, and their MINDS are continually being TRANSFORMED to the MIND of CHRIST JESUS, and they become MORE CHRISTLIKE. And they will DESIRE more and more the WILL of GOD, the GOOD, ACCEPTABLE and PERFECT WILL of GOD, which is PLEASING to GOD.
However, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, you are NOT PLEASING to Him, because you are LIVING by a WORLDLY MINDSET, and your HEART is contaminated by the WORLDLY WAYS, which is a HUGE RISK to your DESTINY. IF you CONTINUE to REJECT God’s Gift of SALVATION, your DESTINY is an ETERNAL LIFE in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY TO ESCAPE, once you are there. You MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM YOUR sinful life-style, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And BELIEVE with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and be TRANSFORMED to His GOOD, ACCEPTABLE, and PERFECT WILL, and it will give you an ETERNITY in HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s WAITING and COMING SOON!!!
