Jesus presented His body as a sacrifice for you, will you present your body as a living sacrifice?

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1

Jesus presented His body as the perfect sacrifice, and He lives now making intercession for us at the right hand of God. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. In light of His death and resurrection, how are you presenting your body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God?

How do you see yourself as a living sacrifice and as your spiritual worship?

My prayer for you:

Father, Thank You for sending Jesus to the world so that whoever believes in Him will receive eternal life with You. Bless Your children with a deeper knowledge of Your sacrifice and that of Jesus, and guide us in presenting our bodies as living sacrifices. Thank You for your sacrifice.

  • Great challenging question! May we all present ourselves as living sacrifices to the Lord today and every day!

    • Thank you Shelly. This Scripture has been swimming in my mind for awhile. Jesus poured out His blood and took the scourging and beating that we deserve, all as a holy sacrifice for us, so that we might have eternal life. In turn, we are asked to present our bodies as living sacrifices, holy temples and live as a kingdom of priests. What an awesome and privileged honor! May you be blessed with the knowledge of His presence in your life. Karen
