Romans 12 This Is your Spiritual Act of Worship

Romans 12: Spiritual worship is Rational worship devoted to the LOGOS or Word of Christ which is the Regulative principle outlawing all of the external ACTS being sold as performing worship which is in the FLESH because the ACTS like music from mystery means "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."
 Worship means to give attention to God by giving attention to His Word which was left to us as a "memory" of the eye and Ear Witnesses of the Risen Christ Who made more certain or CERTIFIED the PATTERN for the Assembly both inclusively and exclusively.  This can only happen in the human spirit or mind made into A holy spirit which comes by request when we are washed in water INTO the word or Into the School of the Word.

The PATTERN from the Church in the wilderness was to PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word on the sabbath day which was to rest FROM the always-pagan and Jewish worship of the starry host. No mortal is prepared not can become prepared to go beyond the command to the elders to "teach that which has been taught." Sorry, that this pattern which lasted several centuries simply has to ROLES and no DONE which hobbles the godly classes from trying to force growth when the command for the only assigned people is to GO and preach the Word, Baptize them INTO the Word or School of Chist and then Teach them what HE COMMANDED to be taught.
Romans 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
        how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
Romans 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller?
Romans 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
Romans 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things:
        to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

God sent Jesus to be both Lord and Christ and SPEAK the WORD or LOGOS of God. This was to certify that no mortal can know the mind or Spirit OF God unless He delivers the Word: Peter affirms that the Word is not subject to private interpretation or further expounding. To go beyond the command to hold ekklesia or synagogue to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine is to prove that one is OF the WORLD for whom Jesus will not pray and the Wise or Sophists (speakers, singers, instrument players) FROM WHOM God HIDES Himself.

Isaiah 59:16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
Isaiah 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD;
        My spirit that is upon thee,
        and my words which I have put in thy mouth,
        shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
        nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.


Romans 12:1I 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.  
        ēn logikēn latreian humōn:
Darby: [which is] your intelligent service.

In the real world a person agrees to serve the person and company which feeds him.  Unless one is arrogant they go into the Boss' Office and PRESENT themselves to be told how to be a profitable servant in that office or Vineyard. 

SILENCE BEFORE GOD IS THE UNIVERSAL COMMAND.  Isaiah 57 has Christ defining the meaning of Silence before God Almighty as a Prophetic Type for anyone who understands that in Isaiah 58 Christ outlawed seeking your own pleasure or even speaking your own words.

To the law and to the testimony:
        if they speak not according to this word,
        it is because there is no light in them. Isa 8:20

In 1 Timothy 2 Paul silenced both male and female who are most likely to bring on wrath, orge or ORGY so that there can be peace and quiet. This was to MAKE POSSIBLE the one piece pattern that "everyone be saved (safe from paganism) and come to a knowledge of the Truth: The Word of Christ IS truth and is the Spirit OF Truth.  You cannot add any institutional baggage or "minister" or "ministries" which burden the flock and do not fit the PATTERN of church is A School of the Word: we are washed with water INTO the Word or into the School of Christ.

Perhaps only the woman at the well understood that when Messias comes He will TELL US ALL THINGS.

John 4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain
        and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me,
        the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain,
nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

These mountains were HOUSES at PLACES: worship IN SPIRIT is a place and the pattern to give attention to THE TRUTH which came when "Messias told us all things."  Both male and female catamites were regular attenders around all sacrificial temples (not commanded by God). Paul knew that the Dogs or Cynics would be looking for any young assembly where food and money might be present: the Levite and all sacrificial instrument players were called sorcerers and parasites. Thereforee,

Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.
Philippians 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

ANY SERVICE OUTSIDE OF THE ASSEMBLY COMMANDED TO SPEAK THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN, SERVICE or SLAVING for others in the name of the Lord  is liturgy but not called worship?

"Biblical Greek. Here the meaning is always religious. leitourgia in the OT is limited to priestly and Levitical administration. In the LXX it renders chiefly the Hebrew abhodha (5656) (from abad (5647)) which signifies service to God, specially undertaken by priests and Levites (e.g. Num.8:25; Lk.1:23; Heb.8:6; 9:21).

Hebrews 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
Hebrews 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

Hebrews 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

The people rose up in PLAY which was Instrumental Idolatry of the Egyptian Triad under Apis the golden Calf also worshipped in Samaria and condemned by Amos and Stephen. The Spirit of Christ in the Prophets affirmed that the instrumental idolatry was a sin beyond redemption

"St. Paul speaks of himself being 'offered,' as upon an altar (Ph.2:17), and Epaphras as sacrificing almost his life to supply the Philippians' lack of leitourgia (2:30). He uses the word to indicate the almsgiving of Corinthian believers (II Cor.9:12). St. Clement speaks of leitourgia of each Christian apparently in the context of the Eucharist (41:1), and later in connection with the bishop's office.(44:3,6).The placing of the word leitourgia in the context of the Eucharist so early in Christian history naturally raises the question whether this term, having a strong sacrificial sense in Biblical Greek, does not figure in the same context in the NT. Is not Paul referring thereby to the offertory gifts at the Breaking of Bread

The Word of God is the only thing that can transform OUR spirit into the likeness of Christ's spirit:
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world:
        but be ye transformed
(metamorph-oō )by the renewing of your mind,
        that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable,
        and perfect, will of God.
