Scripture: Romans 12:1
Romans 12:1 is the foundational qualifier for all those who are counted as spiritual members of the Philadelphia church. It says, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” How many truly present their body as a living sacrifice, wholly acceptable to God, which is a reasonable worship? This is the ultimate yielding to Christ. Nevertheless, not my will but Yours be done. This is the embracing of God’s purpose and God’s plan in our heart, even though it comes with tremendous adversity. Those who say yes to Romans 12:1 find themselves qualified as members of God’s eternal, Heavenly Philadelphia church. I trust that all of us will continue to walk that path because the promises of Philadelphia exceed any of the other churches mentioned in Revelation. There is a payday for saying yes to the Lord.
