Are you an abominable living sacrifice to God?

We are to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God.

(Rom 12:1-2) 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. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what [is] that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

The question is, are you, being the “living sacrifice” – holy, blameless and acceptable to God?

(Col 1:21-22) And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight

Beware! If blemish is found in you, you are cursed, referred as a deceiver and an abomination to God.

(Deut 17:1) “You shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God a bull or sheep which has any blemish [or] defect, for that [is] an abomination to the LORD your God. 

(Mal 1:14) “But cursed be the deceiver Who has in his flock a male, And takes a vow, But sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished — For I [am] a great King,” Says the LORD of hosts, “And My name [is to be] feared among the nations.

Be warned! Let us therefore be holy.

(1Pet 1:14-16) as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, [as] in your ignorance; but as He who called you [is] holy, you also be holy in all [your] conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.

Always remember, you are a living sacrifice to God and if blemish is found in you, you become an abomination to Him. Therefore, be holy still!
