A Living Sacrifice

And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice–the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him.  Romans 12:1 New Living Translation

After all He has done, do we even know, I didn’t until I heard Joseph Prince explain a lot of sacrifices and parallels that I did not fully understand from the Old Testament. He really did so much more, He was our offerings, the sacrificial lamb at Passover, He fulfilled prophecies, performed miracles, walked on water.He summed up the law and the prophets, was crucified, took from the devil the keys of death and hell, was raised from the dead, acts as our High Priest, gives us the Holy Spirit, comforts, protects, heals, breaks yokes of bondage, renews our youth, gives us grace, our daily bread, will never leave us or forsake us. Need I say more? I could keep going.

So it is our acceptable and reasonable service to offer our bodies just as He did His, when you make that commitment you may find your calling, you will find peace and you will find rest in Him and His burden is easy and light. The devil counts on fear, unbelief, deception…but Jesus has defeated Him thoroughly.  It might appear the other way around when Jesus was stripped and beaten so, but it was the devil’s fatal mistake.
