Living Sacrifices

  
Scripture

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1

Observation

Followers of Christ are commended to present their bodies as living sacrifices. We are to live holy lives that are acceptable and commendable to God. In so doing we express true worship. 

Application

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”  Micah 6:8. This is the worship God requires. It is made evident in Romans chapter twelve that the worship God desires is a whole and holy sacrifice of self for His service. In the actions of every day we reveal what is most valuable to us.  When Christ is the focus of our lives we are willing to commit our “bodies as living sacrifices” in a way pleasing to our Heavenly Father.

Prayer

Lord today we commit our all to your plans and purposes.
