Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
-Romans 12:1-2 NASB
OBSERVATION: Those who have put their faith in Jesus are given the task to not conform to the world and its ideals but to stand out and be different for Christ. Every day we are called to present ourselves to God, sacrificing our wants and desires and renewing our mind on His word to do His will. In a world that is all about doing what everyone else wants, let us be determined to do what God wants!
PRAYER: Father, please bless me with the strength to stand out of the crowd and be different for you. Please help me use the gifts You’ve blessed me with to lead others to You. I need Your help Father to stay focused on You. I love You, Lord. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
