Romans 12:1 ” Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God…”

Out of the vast riches of God’s mercy our response to Him must be to offer the only thing we can give Him…the right to ourselves. We can’t dedicate our gifts to Him, for they’re not ours to give in the first place. Likewise, we can give Him our natural talents, but again they didn’t originate from us. The only thing we can sacrifice on the Altar is our will for His. For it tells us in I Corinthians 6 that our bodies are meant for the Lord, and that Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives is in us. We come to the Lord with nothing…empty-handed, a beggar looking for bread…and the Lord’s mercy fills us to the top…so why shouldn’t we then give Him the only gift we can?
