“Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2
This is one of my favorite passages in the Bible. Paul is reminding us that God showed us mercy and grace by giving His only son Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice for sin. When we give our lives to Him it is a living sacrifice. We must choose each day to be transformed and to follow Him. Each day we must also decide to get into His word and renew our minds. There is a promised end result when this occurs and we are offered discernment in knowing what pleases God. This is our goal at Oak Grove. Each day we want to become more and more like Jesus! Our hope is that by joining us online, visiting us and fellowshipping with our community you will get a glimpse about who we are and what we believe.
