SPEAKING AT CELEBRATE RECOVERY TONIGHT

I am getting myself ready for my talk this evening.I will be speaking on Romans 12:1-2 and exploring the reality of living a fully surrendered life to God.

"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."

As many have said the problem with several living sacrifices is that we jump off the altar when the fire gets hot.So we never really get fully burned hence becoming a pleasing aroma to God and those around us.

Part of the reason is simply because we often lose the view of God's mercy...we forget where God picked us from but even more catastrophic is we lose focus of where God is taking us.

So lets pray and after praying stay on the altar long enough to experience a 'burning' to the Lord as a living sacrifice.
