THEME: WORSHIP THE LORD
“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.”
-God is merciful and full of kindness. He has called us to be holy because He Himself is Holy. Through His everlasting grace; God has made it possible for us to walk in obedience to His word and always do what is pleasing to Him. We are called to set our minds on things above, not on things on the earth, for we died and our lives are hidden with Christ in God, and when Christ who is our life appears, then we will also appear with Him in glory. Therefore we are called to put to death our members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire and covetousness which is idolatry, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language and lying to one another, since we have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created us (Colossians 3:1-10). Since our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, we should ensure that we walk in obedience to His will and submit everything to Him, for we have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer us who live but Christ who lives in us. As obedience is better than sacrifice, our bodies should always be living sacrifices to God, holy and pleasing to Him. We are called to draw near to God and He will draw near to us, as we worship Him with our bodies offered in holiness as living sacrifices which is true and proper worship.
We praise You Lord our God for You are good and Your mercies endures forever. You formed our inward parts; and knit us together in our mother’s wombs, we praise You for we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works Lord; our souls acknowledge Your wonderful works. Wisdom and power belong to You, great are Oh You Lord of hosts. You change times and seasons but You change not, mighty are You in all the heavens and the earth. You depose kings and raises up others. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. You reveal deep and hidden things and know what lies in darkness but only light dwells with You, deliver us Jesus from every form of darkness in our hearts and cleanse us with Your precious blood. May our bodies always be living sacrifices, pleasing to You Holy Spirit. Help us to realize that we are not on our own but You dwell with us and in us. We thank You and praise You, grant us Your wisdom and grace we humbly ask You. We exalt You Lord our God and worship at Your footstool for You are Holy, and none can be compared to You. Grant us the grace to live holy lives pleasing to You Holy Spirit, and may You accept our sacrifices from the deepest parts of our hearts. All glory, power, wisdom and adoration belongs to You Lord, now and forever. Amen
