BILL’S BLOG ENTRY #68

From “Discipleship and Discipline” by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:

“Having established the fact that we can offer God nothing more desirable to Him than ourselves (“I am the Lord your God. You shall have no other gods before me.”), how can we effect the sacrifice we are urged by Paul to make? Paul makes it clear that the balance beam upon which a disciple stands is manifesting his being owned by God in a world dominated by Satan. We are charged not to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, that we may prove- demonstrate, manifest, make visible that invisible reality, that truth of our relationship to Him- what His will is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect (complete). “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2: 10″
