The Lord has been teaching me a lot about worship this year. Actually, I think He started highlighting worship in the spring of 2017 when I was in a Bible study on Romans. Specifically, Romans 12:1 (emphasis added by me) has stuck with me for over a year.
“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.”
How do I present my body as a living sacrifice and thus spiritually worship the Lord? I don’t think there is just one answer to this question. I think the Lord reveals this to each of us. For me, it was staring at my kitchen this past weekend…see below.
Mind you this was just one corner of my kitchen. The other three corners looked just as crazy. This is half the evidence of my learning how to eat differently to help my body heal. It’s actually been quite enjoyable and the food is really good! I guess it’s only fair to show two pics of the results of the above mess, the second half of my learning to eat differently. 🙂
So coming back to Romans 12:1, I realized that my getting physically healthy, in a natural way, is my spiritual worship! I’m learning to be a good steward of the body He has given me. I love the unique way He’s allowing me to worship Him!
All that to say….Bring on the messy kitchen!
