Become A Living Sacrifice

DEDICATE YOUR LIFE TO GOD AND BECOME A LIVING SACRIFICE. ROMANS 12:1,2 SAYS, “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”. “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.” GIVE YOUR LIFE TO GOD AND DEVOTE YOUR TIME AND ENERGY INTO HIS SERVICE. BECOME DEAD UNTO SIN, AND ALIVE UNTO GOD, ROMANS 6:11. IF YOU WANT TO SERVE CHRIST, THAN BECOME HIS SERVANT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED ON THE CROSS FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD. THEREFORE, YIELD TO HIM AND BECOME A SACRIFICE FOR HIM. PAUL SAID IN GALATIANS 2:20, “I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST: NEVERTHELESS I LIVE; YET NOT I, BUT CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: AND THE LIFE WHICH I NOW LIVE IN THE FLESH, I LIVE BY THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD, WHO LOVED ME, AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME”. ROMANS 6:6 SAYS, “KNOWING THIS, THAT OUR OLD MAN IS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM, THAT THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE DESTROYED, THAT HENCEFORTH WE SHOULD NOT SERVE SIN”. THE OLD MAN IT IS TALKING ABOUT IS OUR OLD SELF, BEFORE WE BECAME A CHRISTIAN. ROMANS 6:11 SAYS, “LIKEWISE RECKON YE ALSO YOURSELVES TO BE DEAD INDEED UNTO SIN, BUT ALIVE UNTO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD”.

WHAT EVER YOU CHOOSE TO SERVE IN THIS WORLD, WILL BE WHAT YOU BECOME OBEDIENT UNTO. ROMANS 6:16 SAYS, “KNOW YE NOT, THAT TO WHOM YE YIELD YOURSELVES SERVANTS TO OBEY, HIS SERVANT YE ARE TO WHOM YE OBEY; WHETHER OF SIN UNTO DEATH, OR OF OBEDIENCE UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS”. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHAT YOU DO IN THIS LIFE REFLECTS WHO YOU ARE.
