Present Yourself!

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

One Christmas morning, a 3-year-old girl was caught up in the excitement of gifts and giving. She was picking up, examining, shaking, and guessing what was inside every package. Then, in a burst of inspiration, she picked up a big red bow that had fallen off one present and held it on the top of her head. She looked up at her father with twinkling eyes and beamed a smile as she said, 'Look at me, Daddy! I'm a present!'

Everyone loves a gift — including our Father in heaven! In view of all He has done for us, we are to offer ourselves to Him freely, including our bodies. In doing that, we will truly present ourselves to the Lord as a living sacrifice.

This is the season to commemorate God's greatest gift to mankind — His Son, Jesus, the Messiah. As we contemplate the love that prompted such giving, may our response be one of yielding our lives to Him for His glory.

Let's echo the words of that little girl, "Look at me, Father! I'm a present!"
