The reason many people do not have a ministry or know the will of God, the power of God, or the anointing of God, is because they are not willing to be a living sacrifice.
An altar is a place upon which something dies. Do you know what that means? That means that when you die, you have no more rights to yourself. You die to yourself.
If you are married, your spouse belongs to God. If you have children, your children belong to God. If you have a car, a home, or a business—they all belong to God. Your ambitions, desires, goals, and dreams belong to Him.
What does Paul mean when he says our sacrifice is to be holy? It means we are to completely die to ourselves. The word “holy” is related to the word “wholly.” God will not accept half of you on the altar. You are to present all of yourself to Him.
Are you willing to present yourself as a living sacrifice to God today?
