At a key transition in his letter to the Romans, the apostle Paul defines true worship as Christians offering their bodies to God as living sacrifices. This shocking call to offer our bodies tells us that our worship is to be both (1) extraordinary (we need to give God our very selves, not just our stuff) and (2) ordinary (even the most mundane parts of our bodily existence are part of our worship). The rest of Paul’s letter spells out what a life of worship lived by the power of the gospel looks like. Even our eating and exercise can be done in worship to God. Paul casts an exciting vision — you don’t want to miss it!
