Hello everyone my name is Divine 🤗a growing christian just like you… I was listening to one of my favorite songs yesterday and she sang about “MY EVERYDAY OFFERING” Now I’m not talking about the offering we drop at our various churches ……… …. I asked my self ! What I’m i giving unto God everyday of my life … What I’m i compelled to bring unto my maker … I thought about everything I could give trust me I wrote them down😄…………. But then I realized:. I could give God MY LIFE .
I could give him me in whole … Hallelujah 🔥,……… I thought about it more and Also wrote down scripture verses to back it up….. Then I thought CHRIST gave his life on the cross .. He died for our sins and for us so we can have a life here … Giving my life to him is me also saying:LORD I WANT TO BE A LIVING SACRIFICE FOR YOU.
ROMANS 12 VERSE 1: I BESEECH YOU ALL THEREFORE BRETHREN BY THE MERCIES OF GOD , THAT YE PRESENT YOUR BODIES AS A LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY, ACCEPTABLE, UNTO GOD , WHICH IS YOUR REASONABLE SERVICE.
“OFFERING OUR BODIES” was Paul’s way of explaining that as a redeemed people , we surrender our lives back to Jesus in thanksgiving for all he has done Jesus offered himself as a one-time for all times …….. So everyday the offering we can at least offer to our God is to surrender ourselves totally and completely…. God doesn’t need anything, he doesn’t need us to sacrifice for him …… He does however give us the opportunity to sacrifice as a ” LIVING ” way to express our love and gratitude for all he has done …
*)WHAT IS A LIVING SACRIFICE. *)HOW CAN I BE A LIVING SACRIFICE. Oh questions, questions, questions… I ask myself too! Well as Paul said “we no longer have to bring sacrifices, we have become one , we are not a burnt offering, we are a living one” … We come before God and offer ourselves in gratitude and thanks giving and thanksgiving.. we offer all the parts of our bodies, eyes, ears, lips, heart , mind, etc….. In service to him..
Qualities of a living sacrifice. *)Being holy and pleasing to God *) spiritual act of worship. *) Living by the spirit. Being holy and pleasing to God:. When I think of being holy , I think of pure , white as snow , without blemish or stain. Holiness is an attribute of God that he give to things and people who are dedicated to his service. Holiness is purity and righteousness and we receive them free of charge from our maker🤗. 2TIMOTHY 1 VERSES 9:; HE HAS SAVED US AND CALLED US TO HOLY LIFE NOT BECAUSE OF ANYTHING WE HAVE DONE BUT BECAUSE OF HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE God See’s us as holy when we dedicate our acts of sacrifice to his glory and when we strive to show others mercy ,love and peace … *) Spiritual act of worship:. When we worship God .we will serve him .we will do whatever he needs done .To have a servants heart means “yes Lord , whatever you need or want I will do”. *) Living by the spirit :. Paul asked us to “keep in step with the spirit” and grow in his attributes in our own lives :love,joy, peace, gentleness, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,and self control.. what God wants is all of you all the time ,for your entire life .walk with Christ daily no matter the circumstance (collosians 3 verse 17)
I hope this gets to everyone out there and touch every heart and souls today in the name of Jesus…….🙏✝️. God bless you all……, ❤️💡
