Day 269: Prayer for the saints to follow Paul’s pattern in offering spiritual sacrifices to God in three stages

Pray that the saints would follow Paul’s pattern in offering saved sinners, members of Christ, as living and spiritual sacrifices to God in three stages (Rom. 15:16; 12:1; Col. 1:28-29).

Rom. 15:16—That I might be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, a laboring priest of the gospel of God, in order that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, having been sanctified in the Holy Spirit.

Rom. 12:1—I exhort you therefore, brothers, through the compassions of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.

Col 1:28-29—Whom we announce, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom that we may present every man full-grown in Christ; for which also I labor, struggling according to His operation which operates in me in power.
