A Living Sacrifice
A study on the purpose and meaning of being a living sacrifice

This study is designed for the serious student of the word; it works through exegesis and will require your efforts to get through. In order to complete this study, you will need the following:

(1) Bible

a. At least 2 versions, KJV and a second version of your choice. I
recommend the Amplified or the Message. Using the NKJV or
modern KJV are merely modified KJV. You need a version that is
substantially different

(2) Concordance with Lexicon, Strongs and/or Thayers
(3) A Commentary on the bible, Clarke\u2019s, Matthew Henry\u2019s or JFB
(4) A dictionary/encyclopedia; Brown\u2019s, Hitchcock\u2019s, ISBE

(5) A notebook

One good source of all of this can be found in many computer based programs; my
personal favorite is e-sword because it is free and has many of the tools you will need to
do this study.

I.Romans 12.1-2
Romans 12:1-2I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye

present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your
reasonable service. (2) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that
good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1) Words and definitions
For each of the words below, determine the Greek word and definition. If
the definition is plural or a verb (i.e., apples is defined as more than one
apple or destroying is defined as to destroy) then go to the root and

When every the word \u201ctherefore\u201d is encountered; it is indicating the result of an argument for or against a specific case. What is that case, as found in chapter 11?
