“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.”~ Romans 12:1
We are to be living sacrifices for God. Sacrifice means to give up or to offer. We are to give our entire selves as an offering to the Lord. Every step, every thought, every purchase, our bodies, and even our very lives should all be submitted unto Him.
This is our ‘reasonable service.’ This is what we should do. When we try to hold on to or control our own lives we tell God that we can do better with it than He can. God made us. He loves us. Jesus saved us. He knows all about us and He knows our future. Give your life up to the One who knows exactly what to do with it.
