So, how to do we worship in this way? How does our life become a living sacrifice?
One way is to realize our life is full of choices. Every day we choose paths to follow, deeds to do, and actions to take. We will choose life or death, right or wrong—we will choose friends, make decisions, and follow paths that will either bring peace or turmoil. Choosing what honors God is what’s best, but without His help we struggle to do what is right. And, without a changed heart and transformed mind we can’t begin to know what to do.
Another way is to worship with who we are. We can take the talents, interests and gifts we have been given and either hide them, waste them or ignore them—or we can use them to touch the lives of others. If we hide them they will wither. But, if we exercise them and offer them, they will grow and flourish.
God takes us as we are, gives us a new heart and a new mind to comprehend the depth of His love, and then begins to nurture us in the right way to go.
So what does this living sacrifice idea mean to you? What do you have to offer Him?
Giving it all to Him,
