Romans 12:1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.


Paul pleads with believers to offer their bodies as a sacrifice. Not to die for the sake of Christ but rather to live for the name of Christ.


The most important sacrifice I can make is living my life for the sake of the name of Jesus. This is not unreasonable since Christ laid his life down for me. My life is acceptable to the Father because of Christ’s work on my behalf.

I don’t need to think about how I might die for the name of Christ one day. I should rather seek to live my life for the sake of His name everyday.


Father may my life honor you and bring you glory!
