ROMANS 12:1

By on Feb 12, 2015 in Fun | 2 comments

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

    Went to the gym
    Eating fruits and veggies
    Drinking plenty of water
    Recently decreased the amount of wine consumed in the evenings.

Check – this bible verse is surprisingly simple today, body is sacrificing and becoming acceptable!

    Beseech – ask (someone) urgently and fervently to do something; beg earnestly
    Wow, Paul must think this is pretty important to beg…
    Brethren – fellow members, brothers
    I am considered to be among Paul, a believer.
    Mercies – compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm
    Sacrifice – surrendering a possession
    Holy – dedicated or devoted to the service of God

Let’s try using these definitions plugged into the bible verse.
This is extremely important! Focus on the forgiveness and kindness of our all powerful God, directed at you. While accepting these from the Lord, release your control. Let yourself, be available for His service, empty of all but devotion to Him.

Still have got some work to do today…and tomorrow.
