I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1-2 (ESV)
We have a choice to make every day. We can conform to the world that we live in. We can focus on our own wants and needs. We can try to blend in with the crowd. But that is not God’s best plan for our lives. God wants us to renew our mind with his word. He wants to be able to identify his will for our lives and fulfill his plan for us. He is looking for us to be a living sacrifice to him instead of ourselves.
God, thank you for your plan for my life. Help me to renew my mind and be able to discern your will for me. I choose to present myself as a living sacrifice to you in worship. In Jesus name. Amen.
