Word of the Day.... November 14, 2012

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2

As Christians, we should present our bodies to the Lord as a living sacrifice, instead of being conformed to this world.  This world is becoming more pagan all the time, and is programming us to think in a certain way.  But the Lord wants us to renew our minds daily so that we can walk in His Word, His Will, and His Way.  This is not an easy task and will take sacrifice .

We will need to deny our flesh of some of the things that it wants to do, knowing that it is unfruitful.  We will have to give up some of our time wasting activities in order to spend time in the Word and in fellowship with the Lord in prayer.

So what is the payoff for this sacrifice?  Being Holy and “acceptable to God”.  There should be no higher goal for a child of God than to please our Lord.  It is just the right thing to do.  I believe that when we do the Lord will bless us richly!!!!  Have a wonderful day!!!  God bless you!!!
