A living sacrifice

The world has yet to see what God can do with and for and through and in a man who is fully consecrated to Him. Not a great man, or a learned man, or a rich man, simply a man. Well, I am a man. It lies with the man himself whether he will or will not make that full and entire consecration. I will try my utmost to be that man.

Dwight L. Moody


"Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God..."

which is above your call of duty?
which is an amazing sacrifice?

NO! But --
"which is your reasonable service."

Romans 12:1
