PostSubject: A Living Sacrifice   Wed Apr 10, 2013 11:45 am

And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. Romans 6:13

The apostle Paul, who was a splendid example of a disciplined Christian, said "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." Romans 12:1
If we have given ourselves to Christ, then He has come to live within us, and our bodies are now the temples--the dwelling place--of the Holy Spirit. Now we must act worthy of Him who lives within us, disciplining both our bodies and minds so we do not bring dishonor to Him. We must pray as Jeremy Taylor once prayed, " Let my body be a servant of my spirit, and both body and spirit servants of Jesus."
Paul knew Christ had sacrificed His body for his salvation, and the only reasonable thing to do in response was to give his body as a living sacrifice to Christ.
A challenge for you...and me: To commit our bodies and minds to Christ, "which is our reasonable service." We'll never regret it and those around us won't either.

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to commit my body and mind to You. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
