With all God has done for us, we should give our lives back to Him.

In the Old Testament, sacrifices were a big deal. They were a large part of many national festivals. One one day out of the year, a sacrifice was even made that would cover the sins of the entire nation of Israel. After military victories or special blessings, a sacrifice would be made. Yet, every sacrifice was, at its core, an act of worship. Making a sacrifice was a way of offering praise to God and acknowledging His deity. In our One Verse today, we are called to become a “living sacrifice.” How can we do this? By giving our lives back to God. He has given us true Love, forgiveness, grace and mercy. In turn, we should be compelled to give our lives back to Him. It is the ultimate act of worship. I encourage both you and myself to live our lives as living sacrifices to God. He isn’t easy, but it is the greatest act of worship we can give. Ourselves.
