Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.
To be honest with you, I have never noticed those two words underlined together before. But let's look at them again. A Living Sacrifice. That sounds like a conflict doesn't it. What God is wanting us to do is not so much be willing to die for him but live our lives in a way that we live it for Him and not for ourselves. What are some way you think you can live your life for God and not your self?
If you have not been living your life as God wants you to, confess this to Him now and ask Him to help you live a life that glorifies Him. Remember with God all things are possible!!
