“You ask me how I know he lives: He Lives within my Heart!”
Romans 12:2
Romans 12:2 ESV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
[renewal = continuing]
What happens in the mind: [testing/discern = examine/consider/think about] What is the will of God.
What is Good. Acceptable (pleasing Worship). Perfect/Truth.
Romans 8:28 ESV
28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’
“Well with You” = Good. The will of God is Good. Obedience is Good.

Psalm 100:4–5 ESV
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! 5 For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

[COUNSEL [who has?]] of his will]
his will is:
James 1:20 ESV
20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
Jeremiah 9:24 ESV
24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”
Galatians 6:14 ESV
But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Practices: LOVE, JUSTICE, RIGHTEOUSNESS [in the earth].
Man’s contrast:

upset, outrage, offense… get us what?
Jeremiah 9:24 ESV
but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”
[What is Gods will?] We think about it in relation to:

Matthew 22:35–40 ESV

Matthew 22:35–39 ESV

Romans 12:3–4 ESV
3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. 4 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function,
1 John 3:9–11 ESV
9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. 11 For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
1 John 3:10–11 ESV
10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. 11 For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Romans 12
1 Thessalonians 5:15–18 ESV

Matthew 22:35–38 ESV
35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment.

Together. As a Church. The body of Christ. Partakers of HIS Good. Doers of HIS Justice. Lovers of HIS Kindness. Humble at Heart. Filled up on Gratitude. Peacemakers.
Thanksgiving Benediction:
Colossians 3:15–17 ESV
