A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, Sept. 12

Romans 12:1

Therefore, 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.

"A living sacrifice"-- what exactly does that mean for us today? I am reminded of that expression that has become very popular over the last few years: to "lean into" something. I sense that God would be pleased with his creation leaning into service and caring for one another. The sense of physically moving forward, and not holding back, fits nicely with the goal of being a living sacrifice. For that time which we are spending caring for others and loving others, we are giving up concern for ourselves.

Lord God, May I be a living sacrifice for you. Help me to find more ways to be kind and to love your creation. Amen

Becky, transforming
