A Living Sacrifice…
To be Crucified with Christ
By Cinda M Carter
We were once dead in our trespasses and sin…
Nothing to gain, nothing to win.
When we come to the Lord in prayer,
By asking Jesus in faith, He will be there.
He cleansed us by the blood of the Lamb…
God gave us a second plan.
To forgive us when we ask of Him too.
For this reason God sent His only begotten Son for me and you.
In our walk of faith with Jesus…
As babe’s in Christ we take new steps as He feeds us.
It’s a continual commitment to our Lord and Savior.
Through trial and error by faith, we develop a new behavior.
We learn of His love and how He freed us…
Through the blood of Jesus.
At the cross through the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are accepted into His fold, as we begin a new life.
We witness to each other…
To our sisters and our brothers.
That our bodies are presented as a living sacrifice,
We become conformed to His image, Jesus Christ.
Dying to the flesh is what keeps us alive unto Christ…
While we journey in this life.
We become born again believers,
The Lord becomes our best friend, while He draws us even nearer.
I live but yet not I, it is the Christ who lives within…
To all Glory, Honor and Praise belongs to Him,
I present my body as a living sacrifice,
To be crucified with Christ..Amen!!!
‘I beseech you therefore, brethern, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.’
‘Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.’
