Action: Sacrifice

READ: “Therefore I exhort you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a sacrifice—alive, holy, and pleasing to God—which is your reasonable service” Rm 12.1.

THINK: God’s goodness inspires us to offer our lives to him as a sacrifice. He can now do with us as he pleases. We belong totally to him. Different from dead animal sacrifices, we are live ones; we are aware of all we do, rationally. To be pleasing is to be a sacrifice that God accepts.

ACT: Deliver all to God, without reserve, without hiding anything from him.

PRAY: Lord, receive my whole life as a sacrifice to you.

ASK: This action or word is acceptable to God?
