Devotion

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:1-2

Homely

What is wrong with this word? Nothing, unless you know that I meant to type Holy. Only a difference of two letters and yet the meaning is completely changed.

Our lives can be the same way. We might be doing pretty well in our spiritual walk, only hiding a few things from God. But those small things will make a huge difference, affecting every facet of our life, including our witness for Him. If you haven’t completely surrendered all parts of your life to Him, I urge you to do so. Why would you want to settle for less than the great plans He has for you? Plans that can only be fulfilled if you and He work together.

Dear Lord, search my life, help me to confess anything that does not conform to Your will. Please use me for Your eternal glory. In Jesus’s name, amen.
