Presenting Ourselves as a Living Sacrifice for Christ…

Romans 12:1-2 (NKJV), “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

The term “a living sacrifice,” is really underrated in today’s Christian world, where the godly and ungodly are beginning to intermingle. In our repentance from sin and turning to Christ for a new life, we at times forget just what exactly we are being held accountable for in this new life. The Bible states in Colossians 3:3 (NKJV), “For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” In the same way that Jesus died for our sins we are to die to the needs and the wants of our old self. In Jesus we are to begin to think with a new mindset, one totally focused on having a godly perspective of bringing the Kingdom of God to Earth for His spirit to dwell. This means not partaking in the things of this world where sin is becoming more prevalent and normal for people to partake in rather than to focus on biblical teachings. In short, we showcase the Gospel of salvation and just how believing in the Son of God can transform anyone’s life to begin anew. The term Holy in Romans 12:1-2 means to be set apart different from everyone else to display holiness and goodness to the unsaved. This is mainly displayed through grace and mercy. We were are sinners at sometime in our lives and the light of God was shown to us, and called us out of darkness. These characteristics make us acceptable unto God and enables the Holy Spirit to flow through many to cause repentance from the sin nature we inherited from Adam in Eve. As a living sacrifice we complete the good news of the departed Savior. In spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the world and then the Lord will return. Matthew 24:14 (NKJV), “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Through the Assembly of the Saints, we set the example and preach the good news of Christ sacrifice to the world. Allowing the Kingdom of God to be shown through us, and one day usher in the return of our Savior Jesus Christ. Shalom…
