Devotion for Friday in the Fourth Week in Lent

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

~ Romans 12:1-2

This verse is very convicting to me, because my besetting sin is gluttony. I’m conformed to the eating habits of the world instead of being transformed by the renewal of mind and making my body holy and acceptable as a living sacrifice.

Father, forgive me for allowing the sins of the flesh to prevail in my life. Guide me by the Holy Spirit and transform me by the renewing of my mind to treat my body as a holy and acceptable living sacrifice to You. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.

These daily devotions are available in a book The Grace of God, with all profits donated to Love for the Least to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world. L4L shares the Good News of the Gospel with the least and unreached by making disciples of Jesus who make disciples (2 Tim 2:2) and by helping to meet the physical needs of the poorest of the poor.
