~ "Living sacrifices..."

"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." (Rom 12:1)

It's appropriate to offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to God...but how?

Every day, we should put aside our own desires to follow him.  We should lend all our energy and resources at his feet, for his use.  We should trust him to guide us.  Why?  Simple.  We do this out of gratitude for our forgiven sins - the price pre-paid by Jesus.

God has a plan for each of us...a good plan; a pleasing plan...a perfect plan!!!  We have been reborn - we are renewed and he wants us to live honoring and obeying him.  He wants only the best for us.  He gave us his Son as atonement for our sins.  Jesus made a new life possible.  Do everything for him with a joyful heart.  Be a "living sacrifice"!!!
