‘Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.’ Romans 12v1
I like how this passage starts with God. ‘In view of God’s mercy’ What a great beginning!
In the old times, God’s people would offer a sacrifice to show God their devotion to Him. In this verse Paul calls us to be LIVING sacrifices! Our lifestyle is our worship response to God’s mercy on us. Did you ever think about it that way?
