Romans 12:1&2 NIV

Therefore, I urge you in view of God’s mercy to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will.

11/15/06-11/17/06

Because all things are made by God and for God and to His glory and because of the great mercy and love He has poured out on us, we should give all ourselves completely over to Him. To be a living sacrifice you must surrender yourself daily, even several times a day. Complete surrender to God is the only way to live a life that is holy and pleasing to God and is the truest worship possible. Since worshiping God is to proclaim that He is worthy of all praise, obedience, love, and service – nothing says or does this better than giving all we have and all we are. Do not outwardly be like the world. We have been called out of the world and are called to be a light to the world. If they see no difference in us and in our lives they have no reason to be interested in the God we claim. But if we renew our minds and our spirits through prayer and intake of God’s word, we will find our lives transformed as the Spirit of God works in us. Then we will be a light for all the souls in darkness around us, and then we will find God’s will in our lives. Let us pray, “Lord, help us to surrender all our selves to You and to live every day as a living sacrifice that our lives may be holy and pleasing to You. Holy Spirit, work in us as we study scripture and transform us with ever-increasing glory into Christ likeness. Amen.”
