Presenting Our Bodies A Living Sacrifice (Romans 12:1)

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.

Romans 12:1 (KJV)

As we present the temple of our body a living sacrifice unto God, may we remember continually that our purpose here on this earth is to be the very vessels and instruments through which Jesus may unfold His ministry. Presenting our bodies a living sacrifice means that we understand we are literally being called to be the hands and the feet of Jesus. We recognize the beauty of committing all our activities unto Him, of making everything we do in word and deed an offering unto our Lord. Today, may we have the grace to be more mindful of this; and in so doing, let us rejoice that we have been called to live lives of such joyous service unto a glorious and magnificent God.
