Sunday Encouragement

encourage

If this is your day for rest, like us all, you still need encouragement. Be encouraged by this scripture verse today, in presenting our lives afresh to Our Lord and Our Friend, so He can transform them, into the lives that He created us for.

In Romans 12 verse 1 and 2:  {Message Bible}:

“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 fro Him.”

It is virtually saying in all we do bringing it and give it to Our Lord and Our Friend. If we think how could God possibly want some part of our lives well He does he wants us warts and all.

Because you see God does not throw out the past and tell us to forget about it. He use all the material, but rearranges it, and in His hands all things becomes NEW.

Most of the time when we think of offerings, we most likely are thinking of giving money. Even from an Old testament point of view perhaps we could think of sacrificial offering, where they would make an animal sacrifice.

No it is our lives God wants. life in the context of all our very being which includes our whole selves, all our feelings, thoughts,actions, instincts, deeds, bodily functions. bodily movements, anything and everything about us.

Imagine that everything we are, everything we have, all our desires just bring them and give them to God. He is not going to reprogramme what we have given Him to make us robotic. He is going to transform every bit of us, into something he always intended us to be.

This is true Worship of our Creator God. Worship is not a religious ceremony or performance, we sit back and enjoy. Worship of The King we represent, is an act in which we all participate. It is in our participation, we are changed {transformed}.

Worship is the presentation of all of who we are and all that makes us unique, to the King Of Kings {Our Lord and Our Friend}, so He can transform it for the Glory of His Kingdom. We can never out give God, He will always give us back more than we ever give Him.

This kind of Worship is our ultimate act of trust, and we sure can trust Him because He only wants the best for our lives.

Be Blessed Today And Everyday,
