Romans 12:1(NKJV)--I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the memories of God that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice that atoned for our sins permanently. He laid His life down for us so that we may live. He isn't asking us to die physically. He deserves us to be there for Him. God is asking us to sacrifice us where and when He needs us. Jesus came into this world to serve others, so are we. Some people only live for themselves and don't want God to have the control over their lives. They don't know any better. God needs us to go to the lost and show them the light.
God gives each of us gifts so we may help Him in different ways. God has a plan and prepares each of us for our position in life. Some people have the spiritual gift to be teachers; some encourages; some mercy; some prophecy; some serving; some healing; some discernment; some speaking in tongues and interpretation of tongues; some apostleship; some Word of Knowledge; some Words of Wisdom; some in helps; some administration; and some evangelism. Paul makes specific references to spiritual gifts in the following verses: Romans 12:6-8; 1Corinthians 12:4-11; 1Corinthians 12:8; and Ephesians 4:11. Spiritual gifts are different from human talents which can operate without divine assistance.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
