Hello everyone and welcome to episode 49 where today we consider the importance of sacrifice in our relationships.
In episode 48 last week, I made the case that chapter 12 in the Book of Romans is to my way of thinking, the most relational chapter in the whole Bible. There is much we can learn about relationships in the 21 verses of this passage.
It all starts with the first verse in Romans 12, where the apostle Paul says, Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. It is all about our relationship with God. And this relationship is the basis for all other relationships mentioned in the rest of the chapter.
It raises the question of what does it mean to “offer your body as a living sacrifice.” It is an important question that deserves our consideration.
