For Wednesday evening services, the Lord has lead me to do a Bible study for practical Bible verses in Romans. Please come back to these Bible lessons in order to review them and learn them. Whenever we have learned the meaning of Bible verses and think about them throughout each day, we will be in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Not only that, but when we are in a situation in our daily lives and are tempted to sin, we can think back to what we have learned from the Bible and say to ourselves, "The Bible says to not do what I am tempted to say, think, do, and/or desire right now, so I am going to refuse to give in to this temptation." This is what Romans 12:2 means, and it says, "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." This is also the pattern that Jesus used when the devil tempted Him to sin in Matthew 4:1-11.
My copy and paste feature doesn't keep the words that are supposed to be italicized, so instead of me doing it manually, refer to a Bible to see which words are italicized.
1What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? 2For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. 3For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. (Belief is what makes us right with God. Becoming a Christian doesn't require work, so we can't boast about what we did in order to become one (Romans 4:2; Ephesians 2:8-9). John 6:28-29 records, "28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? 29Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent."
Even though there's no work involved, we need to be consciously or unconsciously willing to begin following Jesus/repent after we tell God that we believe Jesus is our Savior, if our hearts are to be prepared to receive Jesus (explained in chapters 1-9 of the pdf file book featured at this website - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com). This isn't work; it's biblical repentance - (If you have never prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, please follow this website - http://chriswaug5.wix.com/howtogotoheaven) We know our hearts were prepared to receive Jesus before we told God that we believed Jesus was our Savior, because we began to follow (imitate and obey) Jesus afterwards. James 2:21-24 explains that Abraham displayed this and proved that he was right with God after he had faith in Him, "21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.")
