Today’s Scripture(s) – Romans 12:1-2
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
God the Father is looking for those who are willing to live a sacrificed life unto Him. Lets’ look at what sacrifice means. (Sacrifice – The surrender or destruction of something prized or desirable for the sake of something considered as having a higher or more pressing claim. The thing so surrendered or devoted. To give up, let go of.). Are you willing to live a sacrificed life unto the Lord? I hear many say, “What is God’s purpose in my life?” Many look for others to tell them God’s purpose for them instead of seeking the Lord for their “purpose”. If you want to know and fulfill God’s purpose – live a sacrificed life unto the Lord, present your bodies a living sacrifice, seek to be holy – “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:16). This is what is acceptable to God and it is your reasonable, (honest, fair, feasible, proper), service, (duty, responsibility). We as children of the Most High God are not to be conformed to the world. Someone is going to say, “Well we are human, and humans make mistakes”, this statement is spoken when someone wants to justify and have an out for what they say and do. DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE WAYS OF THE WORLD do not live by the working of the flesh. “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery (cheating when married), fornication (having sex when not married), uncleanness (dirty and foul), lasciviousness (perverted), Idolatry (praying to or worshiping anything or anyone other than the Lord God Almighty), witchcraft (magical, sorcery, witchery practices), hatred (intense dislike, extreme aversion or hostility), variance (argumentative, opinionated), emulations (competitive, envying, rivaling), wrath (extreme anger), strife (altercation, animosity, brawling), seditions (rebellion, defiance), heresies (manmade belief or teaching of manmade doctrine)” (Galatians 5:19-20). Be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in other words, get into and study the word of God. “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:18a). Talk to the Father about everything. Give thanks to the Father for everything. Sing songs of praise and make melody in your heart lifting up the name of Jesus. Live a true real sacrificed holy life before Almighty God, when you do this He will lead you into and you will come into the knowledge of what is His perfect will.
