REASONABLE SERVICE! – Romans 12:1 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Romans 12:1 –  Devotional

Romans 12:1

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.”

In this crazy, mixed up, and sin sick world it is sometimes difficult to determine what is reasonable. What was once abhorrent is now the norm and what was once the norm is now narrow minded, provincial, and mean spirited. I wonder who could be behind this point of view. Could it be Satan? RIGHT!

God calls us to His living examples even when it hurts. I recall hearing of a young brother, who had a rare blood type, who was asked to donate some of his blood to save the life of his sister who had the same rare blood type.

At first the brother was hesitant, but he loved his sister and even though he was fearful, he finally agreed. As he lay on the table waiting for the doctor to draw his blood and transfuse it into his sister, he asked; “Doctor, how long before I die?”

I wonder what it would be like if we as believers in Jesus were willing to put our fear aside and begin to live a life in which we were prepared to die for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Give Christ our reasonable service!

Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and be a blessing!
