“I appeal to you brothers and sisters, and beg of you, in view of all the mercies of God to make a decisive dedication of your bodies, presenting all your members and faculties, as a living sacrifice, holy – devoted and consecrated – and well pleasing to God which is your reasonable, rationale, intelligent service and spiritual worship.” Romans 12:1
In this verse Paul is begging us to offer ourselves to God because of all that God has done for us. If you are a believer you have a ticket to paradise!
In thanks we should not just worship God by attending a “religious” service, but in our every day walk in life. This is what Paul is telling us. Give all of your self, your mind and your body to God, become a spiritual being. He is saying here to think about all the mercy and grace God has given you. What can you do to repay Him? It is reasonable, rationale and intelligent to make a decision to live for Him, that is the living sacrifice.
Live a life well pleasing to Him and you will actually be happier.
