A Few Verses to Share . . .

When reading my Bible yesterday morning, a couple of verses stood out to me and spoke to my heart. These are some of my favorite verses and no matter how many times I read them, they never cease to convict me!

"Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect" (Romans 12:1-2.)

May each and every one of us truly seek to present ourselves fully and completely to the Lord as a living and holy sacrifice to Him! And may we seek to not be conformed to this world, but to set our hearts and minds on the things above, walking in His ways and for His glory.

  1. That is something that has been on my heart recently, too, presenting ourselves as a sacrifice and surrendering all to Him.

  2. What a great post! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

  3. Thank you for sharing, Anna! And thank you also also for bringing up about not only presenting ourselves as a sacrifice to the Lord, but also surrendering our all to Him. How important that is!

  4. Thank you, Maggie! And you're welcome! :)

  5. It reminds of the verse in Ephesians where Paul urges us to live a life worthy of the calling we've received!
    Beautiful post!

  6. Yes, it does, Salome! Thank you for sharing that. And thank you for your encouraging words!
