Romans 12:1

Rom 12:1 NET Therefore I exhort you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a sacrifice – alive, holy, and pleasing to God – which is your reasonable service.

Paul begged the people in this conversation to live their lives in a way pleasing to God. That is, in a way that makes God smile.

Your bodies mean your will, choices, decision-making, and how you use your physical body.

All the above must align together to do what is acceptable to God. What is acceptable to God is to do the right thing and serve God and humanity.

It’s not complicated! The God-Man relationship is not a Master-Servant type of relationship. Paul said that if we live for God like this, we will fulfill God’s divine purpose on earth.

This is the life God wants everyone to live, the kind of life that makes the world a better place.
