If you have family, obligations, nothing, or everything, it seems we can make it an excuse to not give it up. I meet so many Christians that seem to have it all together and I wonder if they, or I, really do!
A Living Sacrifice: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1 (NIV)
To offer your body as a living sacrifice is virtually impossible unless you realize that you really do not control anything. Just give it up. ‘Give up’ to me means to hand over what is not really yours!
Have you stopped trying to do? Have you stopped trying to force things or people to do? Have you just stopped before God and said I cannot and only You can through me? Do you hope when you die that Jesus will save? Do you think you can know that Jesus will save you and are 100% assured and based on this have some spiritual arrogance?
