THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Everyone claims good moral standards.

But, nothing is cheaper than moral standards NOT acted upon!

Rom 12:1-2
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
KJV

Everyone wants Jesus as SAVIOR.
But, how many want Him as MASTER?

We, as Christians, are quick to own Jesus as the One Who paid the price for our sins.
But, how often do we choose “another way” instead of HIS way?

The purpose of surrender to Christ is to begin a lifetime journey of living in His presence, and
presenting a life to the world that is “holy, acceptable unto God.”

The presence and purpose of God is not found in baptism, church membership, or religious activities.
It is found in the moment-by-moment choice to walk in HIS way!

To be “transformed by the renewing of your mind” means two very important things:
1) STUDY God’s Word, and to
2) LIVE by the moral truths therein.

Jesus will not be SAVIOR if He is not first LORD!
He cannot lead us from the WRONGS of life if we do not choose Him as LORD of our lives!

The Greek word for “bodies” (above in Rom. 12:1) is soma.
It literally means: the WHOLE.
That would include mind, body and spirit!

Are you living your WHOLE life for Jesus?

Love ya!
