A COMMAND TO OBEY…
“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
A PROMISE TO TRUST…
“The Lord your God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing.”-Zephaniah 3:17
If we give ourselves to God in His service…become living sacrifices to Him, He promises to be in the midst of everything we do. He will save us from the evil one, give us joy instead of sorrow, and sing over us! WOW! To know that God Almighty Himself is singing over me while I continue His work here on earth is incomprehensible to me!…But it’s a promise! We ask ourselves “why” He would sing over us; I think the song below pretty much says it all! We used to sing this song in my dad’s church, and the last verse, and the chorus went like this:
“But drops of grief can ne’er repay the debt of love I owe; Here Lord, I give myself away: “Tis all that I can do.”
“He loves me…He loves me! He loves me this I know. He gave Himself to die for ME, because He loves me so! -Isaac Watts
Don’t be afraid to give yourself completely to the Lord…He gave His all for YOU!
