“…in view of God’s mercy…”
The preceding chapter (Romans 11) ends by discussing how God leaves is looking to show mercy to the disobedient. And then there is this beautiful passage:
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen. Rom. 11:33-36
It is in “view of” of this wonderful God, this merciful God that we are told in Romans 12 to “offer [our] bodies as living sacrifices.”
