Living sacrifices

An interesting translation of Romans 12:1‭-‬2 MSG

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

May it help us to examine our hearts and draw us closer to our Creator.

The cost of salvation

Jesus took my SIN to give me SALVATION, SORROW to give me SOLACE and SHAME to give me STRENGTH.

Because of His sacrificial death I’m now fully REDEEMED from sin, RIGHTEOUS in God’s sight and will be REWARDED in heaven.

The BEST for the WORST

God emptied heaven of it’s BEST so that Earth’s WORST could receive salvation.

Oh what love that Jesus died for me.

It’s grace that He set me free.

The peace that He gives me,

And joy for now and eternity.
