Daily Fountain 2017 - Make Your Life Acceptable To God







Sunday July 16
(Trinity V)

Bible Reading:     Romans 12: 1 - 8
Topic:                  Make Your Life Acceptable To God

The dictionary defines sacrifice as the act of giving up something highly valued for the sale of one considered of a greater value or claim.

In this state, everything else is considered as inconsequential when compared to the value placed on one's relationship with his Maker.

God is pleased when we who profess love for Him reset our priorities to accord Him the position He deserves in our lives.

Verse 2 calls for a change of mindset as we feed on the World of life and allow the light therefrom to direct our lives accordingly. This will protect us from being overrun by the world and make our lives pleasing to God.

Speaking from his personal experience of God's grace, Paul urges every believer to strive to identify, develop and use whatever special gifts one has received from God for the overall benefit of the body of Christ.

You are not permitted to sit aloof in the Church and wait to be fed always.

One sure way to conduct oneself as a living sacrifice unto God is to strive to become relevant in the business of the Kingdom.

Prayer
Dear Lord, today I yield my life afresh to You and ask that You help me to please You every single day, through Christ my Lord, Amen.

Memory Verse             Rom. 12: 1
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."
