Bless Him with My Life

13 09 2012

Christian brothers, I ask you from my heart to give your bodies to God because of His loving-kindness to us. Let your bodies be a living and holy gift given to God. He is pleased with this kind of gift. This is the true worship that you should give Him. Romans 12:1 NLV

I am so thankful that I know Jesus Christ. He has provided so much joy, peace and tangible love for my life. Before accepting Him as my personal Savior, my life was incomplete. My walk with the Lord has created so much fulfillment in my life and I am thankful. This passage in Romans encourages us to present our lives as a living sacrifice for the Lord. We can truly worship God by living a life that follows His word, His Holy Spirit and His leading for us. We can bless Him with our lives and our living.

The Message Bible offers another translation of this scripture that encourages us to take our “everyday, ordinary” life and present it to God. Sometimes we resist presenting our whole lives and close the door on the compartments of our lives that may need work. But our God can take our ordinary lives and transform it into full beauty, once we put our trust in Him.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life-your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life-and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.  Romans 12:1-2 Message
