1 Chronicles 8:1-9:44; Ezekiel 11:1-25; John 3:22-36

They…yielded their bodies. Daniel 3:28, NKJV

You would have thought that Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had read Romans 12:1-2. They certainly lived it! The practice of their faith went well beyond lip service and eating habits. It involved their whole body and it was their whole body that was put to the test. The fire that they were thrown into had no effect on their bodies, from top to bottom (3:27), including even the smell of fire! Their bodies were free from the attack of the enemy and free for the Master’s use. It is our privilege to be the same sort of living sacrifices, in body, soul, and spirit. —N. C. Funston

We are an offering,
We lift our voices, we lift our hands
We lift our lives up to You;
We are an offering, we are an offering. —Dwight Liles
