Hear me out, none of those are bad, but tonight, we’re going to invade yourspace. We’re going to find out what is there.
Romans 12:1-2 (MSG)
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God (pay attention to God). You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it.
1. PAY ATTENTION: God is constant
Check this out: God doesn’t change
”He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He’s totally himself all the time”

Check this out: God doesn’t change, but He can change you.
