“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” (Romans 12:1)
God’s mercy is the game-changer. Everything has to change in view of his mercy. The Christian (by definition) knows their whole life is a gift from God and so belongs to him.
Sometimes we think of worship as merely singing and praising God on Sunday. But the Bible says worship is all of life – your body (everything we are) is to be offered as a living sacrifice.
Our body is for the body of Christ, the church (Romans 12:5). I pray this will shape how we view our spiritual gifts and use them for the body of Christ.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
