Living Sacrifice

This verse is not new to me but I was reminded of this verse last week during the third night of our Bible Research. This was the night's memory verse. The verse is in Romans 12:1 & 2. The Bible says "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."

When Jesus died for our sins, Jesus did it once and for all. This means that no more other shedding of blood is required for the remission of our sins. Jesus' blood is sufficient for the sins of the world. God no longer require us to die for our sins, instead He wants us to give our lives as living sacrifice. He needs our lives to do His work here on earth, to fulfill the great commission in Matthew 28: 19-20, to reach the lost. But before we offer our lives as a living sacrifice, it should meet the requirements first; It should be holy and acceptable unto God otherwise our effort will just be like filthy rags in God's sight. Remember, God is holy and only holy things will be pleasing and acceptable in His sight.

Your life will never be acceptable in God's sight if you have no personal relationship with Him. Simply because He don't know you. The first thing you need to do before you offer your life as a living sacrifice, is establish your relationship with Jesus Christ first. Admit that you are sinner, ask God's forgiveness, and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour.

If you have any question on how to accept Christ, please leave me a note and I will be very happy to help you.

God Bless!
