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 NLT)
When I read this scripture I can actually feel the writers heart and cry.”I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of what he has done for you”.
I don’t think it’s too much to ask,considering what The Lord did for us sending his son Jesus to die for our sakes,dying in our place.
We were condemned and ready to be killed because of our sins and we deserved it but Jesus took our place.
All God is asking is not your money or your wealth,he is asking for your life,the life that his son Jesus died to save.
The reason we are here today,alive and living,is because of his sacrifice,sacrifice of blood prompted by love.
The best worship you can offer to God is not your money or a song of praise but a sacrifice of your life,a living and holy sacrifice that will be acceptable by God.
Worship goes beyond singing but giving of your life to God to be used for his glory.
Like the writer of Romans ” I beseech you also my brothers and sisters,that you present your bodies a living sacrifice,holy and acceptable by God “
