I appeal to you therefore, 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 renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:1–2)

If we’re not careful, we can go through the humdrum of everyday life creating unintended patterns and ruts for ourselves as we simply follow established cultural norms. But Paul calls his community to be ever-mindful of living life faithfully in each and every moment so that our living life might be our good and acceptable and perfect sacrifice to God. I appeal to us therefore, to live thoughtfully so that our life together might reflect the patterns of God’s kingdom in this world.             – rc
