Muscle Beach – 1.8.21

A Beach As White As Snow
It was a cold, wet, crunchy, BEAUTIFUL morning on Muscle Beach for 5 HIM to experience what I think is the first snow post.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1‬ ‬
I heard a discussion on this verse this week, reminding us that how we present our bodies (both physical and mental) is a form of worship in itself. That what we do in the gloom these mornings makes us stronger so that we may be more ready to serve.
Remember who gave you your body and act accordingly.
Op out
