Daily Devotional
You are an Offering of Continual Praise


BIBLE MEDITATION:

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

In the Old Testament, the priests would offer an animal sacrifice to God. What do believers offer today? Romans 12:1 tells us that we ourselves, our bodies, are our living sacrifice.

And just as the Temple altars were built with two flesh hooks to keep the sacrifice from slipping off, we have two hooks that help to hold our bodies there—discipline and devotion. Are you disciplining yourself and devoting yourself as a living sacrifice to the glory of God?

In the Old Testament, the priests would burn incense as a fragrant offering to the Lord. What do we do today? Hebrews 13:15 says we continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise.

ACTION POINT:

Our incense of praise should be rising from us, to Heaven, because we are His temple, the temple of the Holy Spirit (see 1 Corinthians 3:16). Are you giving God a continual offering of praise throughout your day?
