Bill Winston (November-21-2022) Weekly Devotional: Your Body Belongs to God.
SCRIPTURE: 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. (Romans 12:1 NLT)
DEVOTIONAL: Your Body Belongs to God
From this week’s theme verse, Romans 12:1, we see that it’s not unreasonable that these things are requested of us. Paul goes on to say in verses 2 and 3, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think;”
Bill Winston (November-14-2022) Weekly Devotional: Forgetting the Past.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before… (Philippians 3:13)
Paul knew what it meant to forget things. Remember that he was the one hauling off the Jews who had confessed Christ. He had put them in jail and even had some of them killed. So, Paul had quite a past. He did it because he was blind. That’s what spiritual blindness can do to a person.
