A Living Sacrifice-To be Crucified with Christ

by Cinda Carter  
4/08/2013 / Poetry

We who are dead in trespasses and sin...
Nothing to gain, nothing to win.
When one comes to the Lord in prayer,
By asking Jesus in faith, He will be there.

He cleansed us by the blood of the Lamb...
God gave us a second plan.
To forgive one when we ask Him with a repentant heart.
He gives one a new beginning, a new start.

By walking in faith with Jesus...
As babes in Christ, one takes new steps as His word feeds us.
It's a continual commitment to our Lord and Savior.
Through trial and error by faith, we develop a new behavior.

One learns of His love and how He freed us...
Through the blood of Jesus.
At the cross through the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
One is accepted into His fold and begins a new life.

We witness to each other...
In Jesus Christ through the Heavenly Father.
That one's body is presented as a living sacrifice,
As one is conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.

Dying to the flesh is what keeps one alive unto Christ...
While in this journey of life.
One becomes a born again believer,
The Lord becomes one's best friend, and draws one even nearer.

I live but yet not I, it is the Christ who lives within...
For all glory, honor and praise belongs to Him,
I present my body as a living sacrifice,
To be crucified with Christ.

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. KJV

Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. KJV
