Presenting Your Body As A Living Sacrifice was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 18th day of July 2021 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
Acquisition of knowledge is not enough; understanding is what empowers you to do. The degree to which you understand a thing is the degree you enjoy the benefits of that thing
If you don’t present your body as a living sacrifice, you will never be all that God has created you to be.
How Do You Present Your Body?
You present your body by killing it; by deadening it.
For if you live according to [the dictates of] the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the [Holy] Spirit you are [habitually] putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the [evil] deeds prompted by the body, you shall [really and genuinely] live forever.Romans 8:13 (AMP)
You do not retrieve your sacrifice. Each time you go back to your sins, you are contradicting your destiny. Dead people don’t fornicate. Dead people don’t retaliate.
Your flesh has a voice, and if you lack self control, you will follow whatever it says.
When your body is presented as a living sacrifice, it cannot dictate to you, rather you tell your body what to do.
Do you want your worship to be accepted by God? Then present your body. Your worship does not exist until your body is presented.
I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.Romans 12:1 (AMP)
The fact that you presented your body as a living sacrifice does not mean that temptations will not come; but you do not hearken to the voice of the flesh when it speaks.
There is a relationship between deadening your body and your bank account. If you wish to prosper the God kind of way, then you have to kill or deaden your flesh so that it doesn’t stand as a hindrance to your blessings. Therefore you must work at presenting your body as a living sacrifice.
