PRESENT YOUR BODY A LIVING SACRIFICE
“…offer yourselves to God,…and offer the parts of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness.” – Romans 6:13
What is your reasonable service to God? Your reasonable service to God is to present your body a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God. Howbeit, it shall be by the mercies of God.
What does it mean to present your body a living sacrifice? It simply means to have a sanctified soul. It means to live a life that seeks to please God and not self. To present your body as a living sacrifice is to reckon yourself dead indeed unto sin but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It means to live a life that does not yield its members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin but rather unto God. It is to yield your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. To present your body a living sacrifice is to lay a foundation for a good relationship with the Lord.
Pray that your soul will continually be in a sanctified state for then will it positively influence the body unto holiness. Always remember that without holiness, no eyes shall see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).
