1999-06-26 - Living Sacrifice Exam
Originally Published 1998-03-07God has called each and every one of us into his family. If you are not sure He did then let me exercise my ambassadorship of the Kingdom of heaven here on earth and bring you a message of reconciliation and invite you to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. He died for you and wants you to accept His atonement and to direct your life to a very fruitful and fulfilling destiny. I'd like to give you some of His Advice which all of us here at CF Devotionals/Webservant Ministries are happy and willing to surrender to each and every day. We all welcome your questions and are here to pray and help you on your journey. Our prayer is that you would simply be blessed as we gird the towel and serve you.
Romans 12:1-5 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Just a few verses to think about folks in the light of God's Grace. Once again I ask are your sins atoned for? Did you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour? If so are you reaping the blessings of the things spoken to all of us in the above verses? Did you lay your life down this morning as a living sacrifice - or did you pick it up and do it your way and attach an "in Jesus' name, Amen" to "Your will be done?" Is He Co-pilot? Or The pilot?
Father, may we grow in grace and may our faith increase from hearing Your Holy Word today. May you help us to apply the things we learn as we abide in You and may You make our day fruitful according to Your promise to us as we do things Your way in surrender to Your will. In Jesus' name, Amen.
In His Service,
