My daily journaling from God’s Word, SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Romans 6.
“Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourself completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.” —Romans 6:13
The life Jesus gave us is lived out through our BODY. These inner spiritual truths must become physical realities. Our bodies must be an instrument (a tool, a weapon of war) for righteousness—not for evil.
I am to give my ENTIRE body to God—every single part of who I am. When I give my body to God, it results in LIFE! When I give my body to sin, it results in death.
Pray through my entire body and give it as a gift to God. Hold nothing back! True life is found only in TOTAL SURRENDER.
Father, thank You for making me alive in Jesus Christ. This very day, I once again offer my very body to You as a living and holy sacrifice. I offer my self/my body to be a weapon of righteousness for Your glory.
Lord, live Your life through me: see through my eyes, through my hands, through my feet, through my mind, through my heart, through my mouth.
Might every part of my body—both in public and in private; when people see me and when only You see—be holy and wholly dedicated to You!
This is where true life and joy is to be found! I reject the devil’s lies, the world’s lure, and the temptations of the flesh! I embrace life in Jesus.
For Your glory and in the name of Christ Jesus, I pray!
