This Romans passage is about worship being embodied.
Luke 10:27 when he said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, love your neighbor as yourself.”
Living sacrifices are also embodied in the body of the church,
the body of Christ.
- Community is where each of us can use our gifts.
- We must forego our jealousy of the gifts of others.
Being a living sacrifice is about sanctification.
- Sincere love means it’s genuine and earnest.
- Out of the overflow of our love for God, we worship God by caring for others.
We worship God with our very real, embodied lives
and with the ways that we love and care for those around us.
