Title: “The Joy of Surrender

Scripture Reading: Romans 12:1 (NIV)

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”

Surrendering ourselves to God is a powerful act of worship. Today, we explore Romans 12:1 and the joy of offering ourselves as living sacrifices in view of God’s mercy.

Offering Ourselves as Living Sacrifices:
The verse urges us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices. This is a call to give ourselves completely to God, not as a lifeless offering but as living, dedicated vessels.

Holy and Pleasing to God:
Our surrender is meant to be “holy and pleasing to God.” When we yield to Him, living a life in accordance with His will, it is a fragrant offering that brings Him pleasure.

True and Proper Worship:
This act of surrender is described as our “true and proper worship.” It’s not confined to rituals but extends to a life lived in obedience and devotion to God.

Heavenly Father, we offer ourselves to you as living sacrifices, recognizing your mercy and love. Help us to live in surrender, holy and pleasing to you, finding joy in this act of worship. May our lives be a testimony to your grace. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Galatians 2:20 (NIV) – “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

May this devotion on Romans 12:1 inspire you to find joy in the act of surrendering yourself to God. Offering your life as a living sacrifice is a profound form of worship, reflecting His mercy and love in every aspect of your life.
