A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, Sept. 7

Romans 12:1-2


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. Do not conform to the pattern of this 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.


These verses offer so much. Paul suggests to the Romans that they should worship by being "all in" physically. We are vessels for the Holy Spirit, and our bodies and minds are all that we can use to do God's work. We can't hold back. We can't allow today's culture to pull us away from our goals. My worship of God today and every day should be evident in all that I do and say. I have this physical being only because God has something for me to do for Him.


Holy Father, thank you for bringing me this life and this body to live it. May I show my love for you in all I say and do. Amen


Becky, transforming

Romans 12: 1-2 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice – the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God‘s will for you, Which is good and pleasing and perfect. Worshiping God in this verse is not about going to church for an hour on Sunday. It is about learning all that God wants us to be in to do that…

Romans 12:1-2


I’m not sure how to offer my body as a living sacrifice, but I do try to transform myself by renewing my mind. I see our zoom meeting as a way to do that. The Upper Room this morning said the same thing. Two women met weekly over breakfast to strengthen their faith, and after one moved away, they continued with virtual meetings. We use many ways to transform ourselves.


Dear Lord, thank you for all the ways available to me to bring you into my life. Your work in me is still a major project, but we’re trying. Amen.

As I grow in my faith, I realize that I should live my life as holy as I can and to live my life with complete devotion to God. This new way of thinking for me is a gift from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit guides me as I worship…
