Romans 12:1 – I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Give yourself to Him completely because of what He did for you. Truly, it’s reasonable to give yourself to the Lord, to say, “I’m laying my life down for You, Lord, because You gave Yourself for me. You have great things awaiting me. And I don’t want to miss any of them now or eternally.” Before you trusted Christ, you lived for sinful pleasures and purposes, but now that you belong to Him, you must live for His glory.
Your are God’s temple because the Spirit of God dwells within you. The temple was a holy place because God was there and people went there to meet with Him. Therefore, He makes you holy by His cleansing blood. Your challenge this week is to be that holy influence toward others. Let God use you to make a difference in someone else’s life each day. After all, thus is your reasonable service.
Grace be with you,
