PRESENTING YOURSELF TO GOD!
And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God (Romans 6:13).
As a Christian, you are expected to present yourself to God as instrument of righteousness. Indeed, because you are instrument of righteousness, do not present yourself to sin. In the opening text, the Bible says that do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. Every Christian should take note of the fact that he was created by God, and his body is the temple of His; therefore, he is admonished to humbly present himself to God as instrument of righteousness.
God has redeemed and purchased you unto Himself. You do not own yourself because you now belong to God forever. That is why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:19, “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” A Christian is expected to present himself to God because he was bought with a price which is the blood of Jesus Christ. Of course, every Christian does not own his body any longer because it had been bought and purchased in the spiritual exchange market with the blood of the Lamb that was slayed on the cross of Calvary.
A Christian is supposed to fully present himself unto the Lord because God has made him His agent of righteousness. God wants you to surrender all in totality. That is the reason why the Bible says in Romans 6:19, “…For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.” Every Christian is expected to take note of the fact that his body was indeed bought over in order to become a slave of righteousness and holiness unto the Lord forever.
Daily Tip: A Christian should learn to present himself to God as a slave of righteousness and holiness because he was bought and purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. Shalom!
Golden Text: Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? (Romans 6:16).
