SELAH Daily Devotions!
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. 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. Romans 12:1-2
Satan, the enemy of our soul has hoodwinked a lot of folk into believing that they can’t make the commitment to live for God because the sacrifice is more than they are able and truthfully, willing to make!
Then there are those who are waiting for the right time, some dramatic turn of events, a holy moment when they can come to God in a manner worthy of His acceptance. And I can’t forget this one, “I DON’T WANT TO BE A HYPOCRIT! ANYWAY, GOD KNOWS MY HEART”. You’re absolutely right! So?
Don’t u know? The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has completely satisfied God’s Righteous Justice! Yet there are still so many who fail to take advantage of what Christ’s sacrificial death achieved for us. There are still many who reject this awesome Gift of Love and are trying to live their lives, the best they can and make it to heaven on their own merits!
My message for you today is simple, GIVE IT UP already!
Duh…Stop trying to pay for what’s already been paid for!
I love how the Amplified Bible puts it; ‘take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, walking around life – and GIVE IT TO GOD AS A LIVING SACRIFICE!
Jesus didn’t wait until YOU impressed Him with your good behavior before He gave His life for you. But while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Ref. Romans 5:8) Don’t let this world continue to drag you down to the pit of desperation, discouragement, depression and hopelessness.
What does this world offer that’s so valuable to you, that’s worth holding onto to the extent that you’re willing to reject God’s Best for you!
What can the world promise that is more precious than your soul? #R U SERIOUS?
No job, no degree, no house, no car, no title, no position, no reputation, no temporary pleasure — no man, no woman is worth clinging onto that will cause you to miss out on what God has already provided for you through the Life, Blood, Death and the Resurrection of His Precious Son, Jesus The Christ!
What better time than right now to take all that you have, all that you haven’t got, all that you hope to get, all that you are, and all that you’re not and place it before God? That’s ALL that He asks in return for what He’s already sacrificed! He promised that He will take you just like you are, and change your whole life – from the inside out!
God offers the best deal in the universe! But this offer won’t last forever! RSVP, ASAP! GIVE IT UP!
Have a WONDER-FILLED day!
