How To Present Your Body A Living Sacrifice As A Christian - Feedmejesus by unstoppable51(m): 11:52pm On Jun 08
“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.” Romans 12:1-2 KJV

Paul begins this writing by lovingly pleading with us like parents would plead with their adult kids, to present our bodies a living sacrifice to God.

This has to do with our daily life. We are to present our bodies holy and acceptable to God.

The “present’ there has to do with seeing and agreeing that your body has been made holy and acceptable unto God, and then walking that way on earth.

That is, you are to see that your body is not some dirty, old, rejected and empty vessel. It is holy, acceptable unto God, filled with His Spirit and owned by Him.

Having known this, you are to walk on this earth as someone who is carrying God in his body.
As someone whose body is a holy temple to God, you are to let that holiness manifest in your relationships, conversations, appearance and daily activities.

You are to yield your body as an instrument of righteousness, not allowing your attitude or lifestyle to become a mockery of the Gospel you have believed and profess.

As lights in the world, you are to shine and let men in darkness find their way to God through you.

How can you do this effortlessly? Verse 2 of that Romans 12 gives us a clue. It says it is via the renewal of your mind.

The renewal of the mind there has to do with a constant meditation on the Word till it forms a thought pattern within you that is good, acceptable and perfect will of God.

The thought pattern then forms a deep conviction within you that cannot be easily swayed.

This conviction determines how you act, respond to others and go about fulfilling God’s will on the earth.

So you want to present your body a living sacrifice to God? Start with renewing your mind first.

Say to yourself the things God in His Word has spoken concerning you.

“I have been made righteous through Christ so I live righteously.

“Grace has been given to me so I am gracious toward others.

“I am the Light of the world, darkness and evil is not permitted around me.

“I am dead to sin so it is no longer at work within me.

“I am an ambassador of Christ so I let my lifestyle reflect this. Glory to God!”

When you make a conscious effort to affirm the things the Word has said about the righteous nature you now have in Christ, you will see yourself living more righteous unconsciously than you would on purpose.

I hope this blesses you!

Glory to God!

Yahweh and his never ending problems, instead of him finding a solution to the problems he created he is looking for a living sacrifice

When the bullet coming to your house, you should have opened your mouth so that it can get in their and most times bullets don't kill lizards who think they can swallow fish without seeing pepper around the ground. If it was too early to get to church and made sure that you visited the mosque near Vatican city and nobody would have agreed that Beyonce was a chorister in deeper life before joining the super eagles to play under 5 would cup games. It is very certain that Abcha was not ready to looted this country in such a way that those money were misplaced by the thieves who forgot to steal from Nigerian Central shrine. But thank your God that you would have died early to save you the problem of being single without having any reason to be alive and see that bullets are not harmful to humans. But I know for sure you will not like the way this country will be managed by Trump is Buhari decides to rule USA and guess that Bobrisky will be the King of the North in GOT but he was busy playing UEFA Champions league that nobody gave him pass to even be chosen as a footballer. You all can disagree to play on the high pitch before riding the horse that might kill people.

Lovely

Seun, lalasticlala, it is hypocrisy, religious intolerance, and acceptable if on Muslim thread only people with deep Islamic knowledge and oath can post and comment on Islam thread why Christian thread is crowded with apostates and people harbour bitterness in their heart, flooded and post trash, foolish and unlearned questions in Christian thread, please know how you contribute to religious intolerance and hatred in which your forum is been used for,posterity is at the doorstep of every one, what is good for the goose is good for the gander, christians are lovely and tolerate all, but there is tolerance level and extreme. Thanks my humble opinion.
