Wednesday, July 1st
(Be sure to read the introduction that has been prepared for this week's Devotionals found on the spot below with the title, Sunday, June 28th. We usually put the message summary there. The message summary is a part of the Deep Six Study as well. So that is where it can be found this week by clicking on "Watch" and "Discussion Notes.")
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1-2 (NASB)
The symbol here is an "altar" and it reminds us of the memorial occasion when we first gave ourselves to God in total surrender to him and his will for our lives. A symbol of an "altar" beckons us to be renewed in our surrender and to go further and deeper. For some the symbol of an "altar" presents to you the opportunity to respond to God for the first time in total surrender to him and his will for your life.
Writing out a prayer response that captures how God is at work in your heart and life today can be a valuable experience. So, we leave the prayer response in your hands today.
