Romans 12:1-9

A Christian fully devoted to God brings Him joy! Often overlooked in Romans 12:1-2 is the pleasure God receives when His children commit themselves entirely to Him. Paul defines this wholehearted commitment as the only reasonable and appropriate way to worship God and to please Him.

Worship is not what we do to earn God’s love, but how we respond daily to the mercy God has shown us through His Son Jesus Christ. We can never repay God for what he has done on our behalf, but our lives can reflect a response of worship that pleases Him. Our worship delights the heart of God.

God has already taken the first step toward us by sending His Son to die for us. He has given himself entirely through Jesus, an act of mercy and sacrificial love. Our only reasonable response is to give ourselves entirely to Him.

May we continue to respond to the great mercy and love of God by giving ourselves entirely to Him; our only reasonable act of worship.
