Romans 12:1-2
(Translation used NIV)
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. 2, 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.
This is very straightforward and yet intricate at the same time. Let’s unwrap this gift and see what it is! :) The cross reference here is Romans 6:13 Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness.  So, we are not to offer our bodies to sin. In view of the world, what is most important? I would say self. The motto of today seems to be, ‘look out for number one’. Satan is the role model for self worship and this is direct opposite of what God wants in worship. He wants us to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice. God does not want us to obey the rules of this world, which is self worship, but to be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  When we accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour over our lives we become one with Him. We do away with our old pattern of living and we become babies into a new way of life. Eventually as we walk in the footsteps of Jesus we not only become like Him but we can see the difference between right and wrong therefore being able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.
Wow, very straight forward.....accept Jesus, change your ways, worship God, renew your mind and then you will know God’s will. How do you worship God? Me, I love to dance and sing, or walk about in the mountains praising Him for His creation, but worshiping God is a daily second by second act. Everything we do we should do for the glory of God and that means even the chores we do not like, yes Squeaks dishes and SOTK cleaning the deck. If our lives become a living sacrifice we can worship God 24/7! 
So worship shouldn't be left for Sunday morning but should be a second by second act. Let's renew our mind to be like Christ and worship the Creator of all in everything we do.


  1. Awesome mom! You did a great job laying that out :) I likes it!


  2. I guess years of homeschooling you and your bro has paid off a bit. :)
    I am glad you liked it.


  3. I love the way you've laid it out, very straight forward sister!! :-)

    The world seems so focused on this "self-importance" deal! It's all about "self". I have found if we give up our "self" life becomes less complicated!!
    Less of me and more of Him!

    Thank you for your message today my friend! God Bless you!!!


  4. Lisa,
    Thank you for the encouraging words! Like I have said I am not a writer, but I guess years of home schooling my kids has taught me a thing or two.
    Plugging along.........

    I agree, less of me and more of HIM!

    God Bless,

  5. Amen!!! This is so very true, worshipping our God with all that we do, is so wonderful!!!

    God Bless!!!


  6. Yes Lon it really is!! It is so much fun when you turn everything you do into worshiping the Creator of all; it fills you with so much joy.

    God Bless bro,
