Living sacrifice

“I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Our lives are called to be a living sacrifice unto the Lord. He has given us life and given His very life to save us from our sins. Jesus is called to be our obsession. In everything we do we are to do it for His glory alone. Every decision we make should be made with His kingdom at the forefront of our minds. 

Our lives are not our own and many Christians live as if they are the ones in control. They seek after their own selfish desires instead of laying their will at the feet of the cross. The Lord is preparing and raising up His bride. He is calling His people to lay down every idol and hindrance at the foot of the cross. Today if the Holy Spirit is speaking to your heart simply walk in obedience.
