The Transforming Appeal of the Mercies of God
Scripture: Romans 12:1–2
The first 11 chapters of Romans have all depicted God’s mercies. Paul has been very thorough in theology, doctrine, and exposition of God’s grace and mercy toward sinners. His promise of salvation depends on divine mercy and electing grace of both Jews and Gentiles. Both are now united to Christ in one body which Paul entreats to consecrate the body for worship, to renew the mind by the truth of God, and to discern the will of God to submit to it.
