I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy,
to offer your bodies as living sacrifices.

Romans 12:1

God has given each of us the freedom to use our own bodies as we see fit. Although Samson and Samuel both had their futures decided for them by their parents before they were born, each subsequently endorsed the decision and were devoted to God’s work. Paul appealed to the saints in Rome to offer their lives to Christ and the same challenge confronts us today.
To what will we devote OUR lives? They are our bodies, so it’s our choice, and our opportunity to do something that is pleasing to God.
