A Living Sacrifice

Romans 12:1 "I appeal to you, brothers, to present bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship."

So how do we do this, how can we "present our bodies as a living sacrifice"?
Well, when we are saved we are living sacrifices! So there you go... get saved! Because when we are saved our wills are conformed to God's will. So we want what God wants. Romans 12:2 "...that you may discern what is the will of God..."
But there is only one little problem... We are still in the flesh... so our wills have changed, but the flesh still wants sin. But thankfully, we will not always be like this, because of Glorification (where God gives us glorified bodies). This also ties in with Sanctification. Because Sanctification is "God, making us more like His Son, in our inner man." So Glorification-outer man, Sanctification-inner man.

All for the glory of God,

So we wait until we are dead? Got to be a better answer than that?

We're not going to be glorified until we're dead. But in the meantime... we can grow in the knowledge of Christ!
