Apart from the World
Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
Once you realize the cross has sanctified you, then you are ready for
experiential sanctification—where you grow daily in your walk with God.
This is the process where you shed the things of the world so you can experience
more of God’s presence.
It’s the act of offering your body as a living sacrifice, as the first verse in
Romans 12 instructs us to do.
How do we do this? Paul continues in Romans 12:2, “Do not conform any longer to
the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
If we do not spend significant time considering God’s Word, we will not be
transformed by it. We cannot become salt and light in our communities when
there is no difference between us and the world in how we spend our time and
what shapes our views and values.
God’s love is greater than you could ever comprehend and it is important for us
to spend time in prayer, understanding His will for our lives. How wonderful
that God has chosen to reveal Himself in a way that we can grow to understand
Him more each day. That is what experiential sanctification is all about.
