Establish the Law Logic
It is for this cause Paul applies the systematic order we have been discussing in the following:
Rom_12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2 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.
Rom_12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Notice that it is by the mercies of God, thus it is related to Grace that is not of any thing YHWH God would possibly owe you as a worker, but it is a gift which comes by God's Mercy that this realization is even had: That your body is to be presented as a living sacrifice, to be holy, that is sanctified to please God BECAUSE it is your reasonable service. Reasonable service, implies logic-al (this is a 2 fold mention, that of the logic of your own mind to reason, but it is lead in the spirit by the Logos, that is the Word of God), it is your Word Service.
And Paul further explains what this mercy of God in action will do when it is applied to our life in creates division, just as Chris taught us in John 17, between us and the world by Sanctification through the Truth of God's Word: It pulls the Sanctified our of the world's conformation and moves from a reform to a transforming of the mind, and this according to the promise of the New Covenant that He will, if you allow him to "I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts...(Heb 8:10)", and this transformed mind, this Logical Service which is the Spiritual make up of God's Logos, His Word, the mind of Christ( 1Co_2:16 ) has the purpose with in the one who has received of the Mercy of God, who is presenting him self as Sanctified, who is now transformed from his old conformation to this world, the purpose of this mind's placement is "that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." It should be adamantly acknowledged that in the English as well as the Greek, that the 'acceptable' or well-pleasing of verse 2 is the same as in verse 1, thereby establishing that Paul is speaking of the total transformation is to the service which has prior been called holy, good and perfect, the Law of God is the Logic of God, the Law is the New covenant mind promised, the Law of God transforming the one having received Mercy as to un-conform him to think like the world, is the living sacrifice which is Logical to the New Covenant Christian. It is thus no doubt that the holy, good, well pleasing and perfect will of God found in his Law via His word is the Righteous standard of God, the mind of Christ, a portion distributed by God according to Faith.
(ABP+) Rom_12:3 For I say by the favor (Grace) being given to me, to every one being among you, to not be high-minded above what you must think; but to think to be of a sound mind; to each as God portioned a measure of belief (Faith).
This is True Reformed Logic, the renewed mind by the New Covenant, which is at variance with the walking contrary to God and His law which causes brings about the Wrath of God and renders us children of disobediance, but now In Christ we have put off the old man with his deeds;
