I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. ~~Romans 12:1-2
When you begin to become serious about obeying the King's Word, your whole body, soul and spirit start to fall in line with His Word. Remember, when Christ gave a command, He was repeating what His Father had told Him.
I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me. ~~ John 5:30
If we are to be an acceptable sacrifice, then we must learn to become obedient to His Word. This is what is called our reasonable service. If we are to truly be blessed, then it is our responsibility to live by His Word as obedient children.
By reading and studying the King's Word, it will transform our mindset into that perfect sacrifice. Keep in mind, that there is no substitute for reading and studying God's Word. Christ our King obeyed unto death. What a King!
In order for us to become strong in obeying His Word, we must make it our goal to take time to read and study the Word. For that is His Will for our lives. That, and that alone, will make us acceptable.
Remember what the Psalmist stated:
that I might not sin against you. ~~ Psalm 119:11
