Word for Today
The Word (89)-Be a living sacrifice.
“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).
In your Christian walk with the Lord, discipline is paramount. You are to subject your body, soul and spirit under control. Many people are born again but they are still carnal. They are not in full control of their thoughts and body. You are to present your body as a living sacrifice. Speak to your mouth, stomach , legs, hands, brains etc and ensure that they are in total obedience to the word of Christ.
In Christ Jesus, you are not merely a child of God, you are a son of God. God the Father awaits your manifestation. Your are the word of God for people to read. This why the Word says:
“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God”
Father, please, give me the grace to live a sacrificial life to your glory in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Father, I pray that righteousness be established in your church and in our different nations all over the world in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Father, please continue to expose every act of hypocrisy and evil in our societies and bring the perpetrators to shame in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
