1 Gratitude in Action Romans 12:3-8 By David Turner

2

3 Gratitude for what God has done for us Romans 12:1–2 (ESV) 12 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 worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

4 Romans 12:3–8 3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. 4 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, 5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

5 First Evidence of a Transformed Mind is a change in Attitude. 3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. Do not super-think [huperphroneo] of yourself more highly than you ought to think [phroneo], but rather think [phroneo] of yourself with sober thinking [sophroneo].

6 Be humble: Remember, what you are and have is from God. – Dont take credit for Gods grace, either saving grace or serving grace. – Warning: God loves you too much to let you be arrogant. Recognize that you are fortunate to be a part of the body of Christ. – You are not Gods gift to your church. Its not the churchs blessing to have you. Its Gods grace that let you in. – It is a privilege to serve!

7 Its Arrogant to Work Alone 4 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, 5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

8 6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. Prophecyin the New Testament, as in the Old, the prominent idea is not prediction, but the inspired delivery of warning, exhortation, instruction, judging, and making manifest the secrets of the heart

9 Colossians 3:17 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

10 1 Thessalonians 5:18 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

11 Thank You Lord
