The Marks of Genuine Repentance

Romans 12:1, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual act of worship.”

One of the joys of serving as the pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Craig Colorado is that God has graciously blessed this Body of Christ with two phenomenal ministries: Eagles Nest Preschool and Calvary Baptist School. One the times that I look the most forward to every week is chapel time with the students.

This past week I spoke to the CBS (Calvary Baptist School) students every morning except Friday. The text which I taught through was Romans 12:1-2; 9-21. In this passage Paul, under divine inspiration, gives us the marks of the Christian life. Sadly so many Christians struggle with living the Christian life. They struggle with sin, busyness, misappropriated priorities, and on and on and on.

Why is it like this for so many professing Christians? I believe it is because far too many Christians have a consumer mindset when it comes to God. We want God for what God can give us. This is what I wanted to challenge our students with this week, to have the right perspective on God. I pray that the Holy Spirit blessed them with His rich knowledge and understanding.

Many Christians try a lot of different formulas in the pursuit of fulfillment. They attend conferences, read books, listen to Christian radio, watch their favorite TV preachers in the quest for the desired results of being in a relationship with God. They change churches in search of some sort of supernatural emotional experience. This is the attraction for some in the charismatic movement. They are always on a quest for the benefits of being a Christian. But oddly enough we are never promised very many, if any, temporal benefits. In fact just the opposite is true; we are promised trials, tribulations, suffering, and hatred from a good portion of the world.

Most Christians have it all backwards I’m afraid. Instead of focusing on themselves they are to be completely focused on God as Paul admonishes here in Romans 12. Romans 12:1 says that we are to be a “living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God.” Hebrews 13:15 says, “Through Him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge His name.” The supreme calling of every Christian is to worship God, to glorify God, to exalt God. True worship then involves every aspect of our lives, not just one hour on Sunday morning. True worship involves much more than just prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. It involves such things as sharing with others, especially those of the “household of God,” but it is certainly not limited to them. In Hebrews 13:16 it says, “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have…” Why? Because “such sacrifice is pleasing to God.”

As I was teaching in chapel on Thursday morning this week one third grade boy made this observation: “Once we are saved we are supposed to be a completely different person.” That young man got it. My prayer is that you will as well over the next days and weeks as we by God’s grace work our way through this wonderful passage of Scripture . May God bless you with the riches of His knowledge and understanding.
