Daniel Fast - Day 17

A living Sacrifice:  Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will. 

This is what the Lord asks of us... and what better time to begin (if we haven't already) than now during this fast.  Romans 12:1 says to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God - this is our true and proper worship.  Romans 12:3 says not to think of ourselves as more highly than we ought.  What am I getting at with all this?  It's this... Forgiveness; It all starts with this one word.  When we came to Christ we asked Him to forgive us... and it's a daily process (at least for me anyway).  So as He forgave us we too must forgive so we my do His will. 

Let this fast be a sweet aroma in the nostrils of God and that He may accept this fast as sacrifice unto Him.  But first we must begin by not thinking highly of ourselves and forgive those around us. 

Have a blessed day!
