What are we to do, now that we are Christians? Abide, rest and recognize what He has done, learn of Who He is and let Him motivate us from this place of rest into a life of good works (2); (3). We are now God’s because He purchased us. He bought us (4) with the price of His own blood (5) – the purchase of his finished work.
“I beseech (urge) you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, (All that God has accomplished for us in His Finished Work), that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, (which is already) holy, acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1). It is only reasonable now that Christ has sacrificed Himself for us and one the work to save us to the uttermost, that we now are left with simply presenting ourselves to Him, having already been accepted, and made holy on the grounds of His finished work (6); (7); (8). This means that we are not capable in ourselves, but available to His power and might (9); (10); (11). Together as a Body of believers, we make an invisible God visible (12) to a lost and dying world.
