I beseech you therefore by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God – Romans 12:1 6.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1

Beloved brethren, just like our Lord gave His followers of all ages and you in particular, eternity defining truths on the sermon on the mount, so also the blessed Holy Spirit did same through apostle Paul in the book of Romans chapter twelve. See this yourself.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1

The blessed Holy Spirit said, I beseech you therefore. He said so, because of vital important truths that have been revealed, before chapter twelve. See some of them.

1. All believers and you are called to saintliness.

Romans 1:7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2. The gospel is the power of God.

1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

3. All believers and you in particular are to live by faith.

1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

4. All believers are under compulsion to know the entire truths of the Bible. This is because, your not knowing any truth does not absolve you from its consequences.

1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

5. The resolve of vast majority of people all over the world, not to retain the knowledge of God in their lives

1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1

6. There is no respect of persons with God.

Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

7. God has at His disposal adequate resources through which all humanity from the outset of creation to the end of time, shall be judged.

2:12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

8. Jesus Christ our Lord, shall judge and decide where all humanity, including you shall spend eternity.

2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

9. All humanity have sinned and all can be saved through faith in the finished works of Christ on the cross of Calvary.

Romans 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

10 All believers including you are dead to sin and should be living a lifestyle free from all sins. You and all believers are to be walking in newness of life and biblical holiness.

Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1

11. All believers including you are free from all condemnation after receiving Christ and not to be walking after the flesh.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

12. Confession of Christ is the pathway to biblical salvation.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1 6.

Beloved brethren, because of all of these, the blessed Holy Spirit therefore says, the way to reasonable and acceptable service before God, is to present your bodies a living sacrifice. See this yourself.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1 6.

This becomes absolutely necessary, because, the first thing you shall be doing when you meet Christ at eternity, is to tell Him, what you do with your body.

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Beloved brethren, if you really want to be part of the dawning rapture, then you must use your bodies to do, only what you and Christ, can do together.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

No wonder, apostle Paul said, he and every wise and heaven bound believers shall put their bodies under the subjection of the blessed Holy Spirit and the scriptures.

1 Corinthians 9:27
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Dearly beloved brethren, both in the old and new testaments, the Bible reveals how Bible believing believers should present their bodies a living sacrifice. See them.

Old testament.

Psalms 15:1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 15:3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. 15:4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. 15:5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Isaiah 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; 33:16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. 33:17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

New testament.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1 6.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 9:27
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

The good Lord shall help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
