Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is yourspiritual service of worship. — Romans 12:1
God has given us great mercy. How thankful are you for His mercy? Thankful enough to trust Him with your life? Enough to say, “Lord, I am yours. I give myself to you as a holy sacrifice (giving up my life so Jesus can live in and through me)?
God, in reverence to You, I will practice holiness by adhering to Your Word that You may be pleased with me and use me for Your glory. This is how I want to worship You, Lord, by giving You my life and letting Jesus live through me to the glory of You, God. — Amen
and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. — Ephesians 5:2
Christ loved and “gave Himself up for us”. Are you willing to give yourself up for someone? Who might that be? Are you willing to give yourself up for Christ so He may do a good work in you? Give yourself as a holy sacrifice? Surrender means giving it all up for Christ who gave it all up for you. Are you willing to die for the cause of Christ? He was for you.
Today, be a fragrant aroma of offering and sacrifice to God. In turn you then will be a sweet aroma to those around you.
