Romans 12 begins with the word “therefore,” which tells us that everything we’re about to consider there is made true because of what’s just been said.
Paul ends Romans 11 with this very important statement “from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.” Romans 12 isn’t an imperative to go and transform yourself by renewing your own mind. It’s a description of what Christ does within us as we look to Him.
