The Apostle Paul wrote each of his epistles to draw his readers closer to God. In Romans 12, he said you must each present your body as a living sacrifice.
Did you ever wonder what that looks like and how we can accomplish it?
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Romans 12:1
Look closely at that verse to see why you should present your body as a living sacrifice. It says because of all God has done for you. Next, he wrote a sampling of what God has done.
- God transforms you into a new person by changing the way you think. (v.2)
- He has offered you his will which is good and pleasing and perfect. (v.2)
- He has given you a measure of faith. (v.3)
- And He has also gifted you that enables you to do certain things well. (v.6)
