A Living Presentation

Romans 12:1-2

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. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Daily living a life of testimony before this world is a constant theme throughout the Bible.  Our verses today teach us plainly of our duty.  We have been asked by God to present ourselves to Him as a living sacrifice.  Here are a few things to meditate on today concerning our presentation to Him.

Presenting our bodies as a living sacrifice to God is…

  1. Required – I beseech you, therefore, brethren
  2. Responsible – by the mercies of God
  3. Real – a living sacrifice
  4. Righteous – holy, acceptable unto God
  5. Reasonable – which is your reasonable service
  6. Rejection – be not conformed to this world
  7. Reformation – be ye transformed
  8. Renewing – by the renewing of your mind
  9. Reality – that ye may prove
  10. Rewarding – that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God
