You should give yourself to God:
* Through your life - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
This body of mine is not mine! Jesus has bought me by way of the Cross. He purchased me with His own blood and now I am His to do with as He sees fit. If I choose not to give my life completely to Him, I am in rebellion. Listen now, if I know to do good and do not do it, that is sin (James 4:17, “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.”) and I am not giving Him my very best or my all. If I desire to live a Godly life I will seek to respond to His gift of salvation by loving Him and serving Him with all I am.
Is there something in your life today that God is identifying for you, this very moment, that you have rebelled against Him? Is there a sin you are aware of that you will not repent of, because you choose not to listen to the Spirit of God, as seen through His Word or heard of from His messenger? If there is a situation like that in your life, you can not give yourself fully to God!
Because, we are not our own, God expects us, as believers, to give our lives unconditionally, in obedience to Him, with no excuses, reasons or explanations to qualify our behavior. Let’s become obedient through repentance and not only give our lives fully to Him but live out daily to the Glory of God all we are and ever will be.
God wants our bodies to live in holiness and righteousness, that is “honoring God with your bodies.” Remember Romans 12:1,
