So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2 MSG
All my life, all your life, is worth offering to God.
In exchange, He makes us over!
Not your typical makeover, visible only on the outside, but one that happens from the inside out, shaping us with a well formed maturity we could not experience otherwise. The makeover He has designed for us where we become more like Him, and more easily able to sense what He wants us to do, where He has for us to go, and quickly respond in obedience.
All in, as an offering, for all He has in for me!
Won’t you join me?
We can trust He has the best in store because of our Creator’s great love for us!
