Living Sacrifice

above_only

Romans 12:1(KJV, GNB): I 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.

Your body is God’s Temple and the Spirit of God lives in you, 1Cor.3:16. God wants to be worshipped at all times in your body. Apart from the worship of praising and adoring God, He wants us to continually surrender our bodies to Him as living sacrifices. He wants us to be in a perpetual state of surrender and yieldedness to Him. He is our Saviour as well as our Lord and King. We owe Him our lives and doing His will at all times should be our priority.
This should not be something we do just once in a while. It is something we are to continue doing. We should always desire to be acceptable and pleasing unto Him. We must please Him always and continue to present ourselves to Him as living sacrifices, ready for His use. This is the greatest worship offering that you can give to God.
You can do this by the help of the Holy Spirit and by God’s mercies. Your consciousness of God’s mercies towards you will fuel your rendering this act of continual sacrifice and worship unto God. You don’t belong to yourself but to God. You did not save yourself. God saved you and gave you the life and purpose you are living now. It is not you that keeps yourself; it is of His mercies that you are not consumed. God deserves to be worshipped, especially with your entire life fully yielded to Him. The grace to continually present yourself unto God as a living sacrifice is upon you today.

Prayer Focus: Tell God today that the reason you live is to worship Him. Dedicate yourself to His will for your life today.
