A Living Sacrifice

 

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. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2

Our bodies belong to God because He gave His body for us.

We must live a holy life that becomes an acceptable sacrifice to Him.

Conforming to the culture of the world is unexceptable to our Holy God.

God transforms us when we allow Him to change how we think.

God’s will for us is good, pleasing to both Him and those around us. He is perfecting us to approach His Throne in Heaven where we will see His perfect holiness.

Blessings to you and yours!

Go and Tell

Acts 20:24 My life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the LORD Jesus – the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.

God’s purpose and plan for my life demand that I tell others about Jesus. That includes what He did on the cross and what He’s doing in my life right now.

GRACE – God’s Redemption At Christ’s Expense

The Good News encompasses several parts of Jesus’ life:

       His birth – Luke 2

       His life – Matthew  Mark  Luke  John

       His death and resurrection – Luke 22, 23, 24

       His return – Matthew 24

 

What in your life can be shared to show Jesus is alive and active in it? What miracles, large and small, will you share with others for the purpose of telling about Jesus? Are you modeling Jesus’ life with yours?

Blessings to you and yours!

He Has All Of Me

GOD is striding ahead of you. Proudly, with importance in His step. He’s covering every second, every nuance of this day.

He’s right there with you.  Not just ahead but in front, back, sides, up and down.  In my mind, my heart, my soul.  He has all of me. He’s covering every second, every nuance of this day.

He won’t let you down.  He keeps all of His promises, faithfully.  He never fails me.

Don’t be intimidated.  There are bullies and controllers everywhere, including my inner mind!  Stop listening to them.  Only God is worth consistently listening to!

Don’t worry! Just stop letting whatever is bothering you have such control.  God is in control.  He has it all covered.

Blessings to you and yours!
