In Romans 12:1-2, we are called to look, listen and learn from God. Paul begins his letter with the words "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God," (Romans 12:1). He appeals based on what God has done for us, reminding us that it is only by His grace that we can live in a way pleasing to Him.
Paul then calls us to look at our lives by presenting our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1). We are to take an honest inventory of our lives and see what needs to be changed so that we may honor God with our lives.
Next, Paul calls us to listen to God's will for our lives by not being conformed to the patterns of this world (Romans 12:2). We are called to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, which requires that we pay attention to what God is saying through His Word and through prayer.
Finally, we are called to learn from God by actively seeking to discern His will (Romans 12:2). We can search the Scriptures and seek godly counsel, trusting that He will lead us and guide us in His ways.
