How could I show God my thankfulness?

The Bible is rich with imagery. I think sometimes we miss the deeper meaning of a passage because we fail to step back and admire the masterpiece that the author painted.

With that in mind, I like to “illustrate” Bible passages in the form of hand-drawn, 2-minute videos. Here’s a video I did of Romans 12:1.

The tension in this verse is heightened by its placement within the book of Romans. Paul spends the first 11 chapters describing God’s magnificent gift to mankind. Then he turns and spends the last 5 chapters telling us how we should live as Christians. Romans 12:1 is the critical hinge verse that connects God’s gift to our response.

I wanted this video to cause us to gasp at the extreme nature of this command, but also to see its necessity. How could we, in good conscience, give anything less?

I create a new Bible video every week. If you found these videos helpful, you can join my email list and I’ll send you my newest video every Tuesday.
