This is the acceptable year of the LORD
Good, Pleasing and Perfect
1 So then, my friends, because of God's great mercy to us I appeal to you:
Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God,
dedicated to his service and pleasing to him.
This is the true worship that you should offer.
2 Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world,
but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind.
Then you will be able to know the will of God what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect. (Good News Bible)
Great, Loving Father,
I declare that since I have offered my life to You
to fit in with Your purpose while I am alive;
that You are transforming me in my inner person every day,
so I become more like Jesus;
that I am daily changing the way I think,
so that my thoughts come in line with Your thoughts;
I declare that this change in my thinking
is something I commit myself to daily,
so that my thinking and attitudes
move up from being just good,
and they gradually become more pleasing to You
and finally I find myself achieving
Your full and perfect purpose for my life.
Thank You, Lord Jesus for making this possible, Amen.
