“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1

Think

Think about your life for a moment. In your day-to-day dealings and moment-to-moment movement, what are you doing with the time you have? Those of us who call ourselves Christ followers have been challenged with a countercultural call from God to live to a higher standard. Yet, in a world where it is so easy to compromise, how are we to fulfill that call? The answer is found in today’s verse.

We are called to offer ourselves as a living sacrifice. In other words, everything we are, everything we have, every word we speak, every thought we have, every action we take – everything about us – should be offered up to God. Why? Because when we give it all to God, we show Him our trust in Him and we become obedient to His authority in our lives. There’s no greater way to show God your love or to experience His plan for your life. So as you go through your day today, ask yourself if you have given everything to God.

Pray

Offer yourself right now to God. Lay your heart before Him and ask Him to use you as He sees fit. Present your body, mind, heart, and soul to Him.

Act

Take a step of action in obedience to God today. If you aren’t part of a local church, what’s stopping you? If you haven’t stepped up to serve, take this opportunity. Whatever step you need to take, let someone at Fellowship Church know. And discover the power of living your life completely for God.
