As a follower of Jesus Christ our life is not our own. Some people would take offense to that but those who have been conquered by the love of God have willingly and gladly given their life complete over to His lordship. Now, we live our life as "living sacrifices". Loving, caring, giving, all done as a sacrifice. But here is the question, is it really a sacrifice when it is motivated by love? It is so much more than a choice, more than a choosing of the will. The living sacrifice is a joyful celebration of the love and grace that has been lavish upon us that we can't help ourselves but live as a sacrifice and give away our lives to those around us.
