One little boy went to church. He did not have any money, but when the offering plate was passed, the little boy set it on the floor and stood in the offering plate. This little boy was saying “Jesus, I give you myself!”
This is a popular story told in many churches. Who was that little boy? Where did he live? I do not know, but the idea is great for all of us! We need to give our lives, our thoughts, actions, money, work, feelings… everything we have to Jesus!
Romans 12:1-2 “So brothers and sisters, since God has shown us great mercy, I beg you to offer your lives as a living sacrifice to him. Your offering must be only for God and pleasing to him, which is the spiritual way for you to worship. Do not be shaped by this world; instead, be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.”
Someone once said when talking about Romans 12: 1-2, that the ONLY problem with a living sacrifice is that it continues to want to crawl off the altar! Because we are ALIVE, God gives us choices! Every day, every moment, we can choose to serve God or not serve God! So let’s be a living sacrifice that continues to choose to give our lives to God! Enjoy this short DVD clip and remember to give yourself to God! Holy Hugs!
I JUST Want to PRAISE YOU! (SONG FROM ONE STEP)
This song was videotaped in Ector, Texas. Ector is where my sisters family has lived for years. Ector is where all three of my children did at least part of their education. We love the sweet Texas country town of Ector.
Many years ago, my sister, Vurlenda, introduced me to her friend, Judy Glaser. Judy shared testimonies and songs of Gods power. Both Vurlenda and Judy loved to sing praises to the Lord. Both are now in heaven with their King Jesus! I remember Judy sharing a song with me called “Miracles still happen!” That song was very encouraging to me! When we were looking for a place to videotape the song, ” I Just Want to Praise You” by Branded, we wanted a simple but sweet background. There was one pretty wall that stood by itself near Judy’s home in Ector. Judy gave me permission to sign the song there. Vurlenda and Judy have completed their worship on earth. We need to worship the Lord and make that our most important goal that in everything we do, singing or living, that we praise the Lord. It is our turn to praise Him!
