WHAT IS TRUE AND PROPER WORSHIP? IT IS BEING SACRIFICED ALIVE! That's what God wants us to be...living sacrifices. God wants people who live holy lives and please God in our service to Him. The Bible says,"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is —his good, pleasing and perfect will," (Romans 12:1-2 NIV).
In order to become a living sacrifice we must become a non-conformist in relation to the patterns and norms of this sin-sick world we live in. And the only way to do that is through a complete renovation of our heart and mind. That can only be accomplished through the power that comes from Jesus Christ and the work of The Holy Spirit. When that happens we will begin to know and understand God's good, pleasing and perfect will for our life. How is our true and proper worship today? Each of us must ask that question.
