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.
We’ve discussed how life can be difficult, particularly Sundays. Avoid the easy way out: don’t give up and stay at home, but rather get out of bed; iron the clothes and find the missing shoes; corral the fussing children; put them in the car; turn on some classical music or hymns to calm your nerves and the
savage beasts darling children; and just drive to church. If you need a shot of encouragement, check out the comments on this post.
YOU are the living sacrifice which God wants presented in an assembly of believers.
Read that verse above. Something that makes us “holy and acceptable unto God” is worth sacrifice, isn’t it?
