All throughout scripture we find how the Lord really loves sacrifices. This is not because God needs the sacrifice from us to feel needed or anything like that, but rather the most pleasing thing to Him is a sacrifice done not only out of obedience, but a love for God, which is why we should always give our best!
Here, Paul gives a strong encouragement as he pleads with us by the mercy that God has shown us to offer ourselves to God in three ways: 1) Living. 2) Holy. 3) Acceptable. Am I living a life that is FULLY sacrificed to Him so that He always gets the very best of me, so in turn, people get more of God in my life? Live a life FULLY for the Lord and see how He will fill you and shine through.
