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
I love this verse. It has been in my head and on my heart for 2 weeks now. I try and try to make my life an offering, most days I fail but there's still grace. Last weekend my Pastor asked us a question..."what does your life look like to the people around you? Do they see Jesus in you?"
So today I ask you that question, what does your life look like to the people around you? Do they see Jesus in YOU? This question takes a lot of soul searching, it should get you praying and asking God to reveal what you should be working on. I have been praying on this for a few days now, there is always work to be done in my own heart. Don't get so caught up in the world around you that you forget whose you are, don't ever forget who you're living for. Make your life an offering today.
