Eye On Integrity-Living Sacrifices to God

August 1st, 2018

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Romans 12, verses 1 through 3.

“I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”

What does it look like to offer our bodies as living sacrifices? It starts with a clear view of God’s mercy and responding with a heart of gratitude. We can start this process with a simple prayer that says to God, “Thank You for your mercy. In light of what You have done for me, I offer myself to you. Have your way in my life.”

Clarity of God’s will comes into view in the process of offering ourselves to God for His purposes.

Walking as a living sacrifice to God is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
