Romans 12:1

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service and worship.1 [At the conclusion of the death of our selfish, sinful nature, we are washed on the inside with holy water, we are burned with the Holy Spirit's baptism of fire, the blood of Jesus is sprinkled in our consciences, (the door to our heart), and we offer the incense of prayerful praise, joy, and thanksgiving for being freed from the darkness of this world to enter the kingdom. These are the events that you must see, feel, and experience before your belief has yielded salvation.]

John 12:25

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 25 He who loves his life shall lose it; and he who hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Few will be saved because of their love of life." It is not easy to lose your life. The narrow way to the superior, eternal life of God is hard; as kingdom-dwelling Isaac Penington wrote: "the way is long, the travel hard, the enemies and difficulties many, and that there is need of much faith, hope, patience, repentance, watchfulness against temptations, etc., before the life (the superior, eternal life of God) in them arrives."]

Romans 6:19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 19 I speak in terms of men because of the weakness of your flesh. As you previously yielded your body to the slavery of uncleanness and from wickedness to wickedness; so now yield your body to the slavery of righteousness that results in holiness.8 [The slavery of righteousness is to only speak and act in obedience to the commands you hear spoken by the Holy Spirit.]
