Israel, as you go into the land and attack the nations that are there, the LORD will get rid of them, and you can have their land.
But that’s when you must be especially careful not to ask, “How did those nations worship their gods? Shouldn’t we worship the LORD in the same way?”
Dear friends, God is good. So I beg you to offer your bodies to him as a living sacrifice, pure and pleasing. That’s the most sensible way to serve God. Don’t be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him.
