Romans 12:1 Daily Devotional
Paul, the author of Romans, is helping us to understand what is expected of us in response to God’s mercy. He’s teaching us how to really worship. To truly worship, we must offer ourselves up to him as living sacrifice doing what love requires of us.
You can live your life as a living sacrifice by doing the things Jesus did. Feed the hungry, be generous, and give water to the thirsty among other things. It’s in meeting practical needs that Jesus is made known. Prayer is good and has its place, but if you’re able to meet the needs of people around you, do it!
Help me to be a living sacrifice for you. I know this is the true way to worship. It’s not necessarily through music or prayer, but it’s through serving the people you’ve put in my life that I can properly worship you. Help me to be generous and always looking out for ways to serve. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
