I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. (Romans 12:1 NKJV)
When one joins the military they are bound by an oath to support and defend the constitution and bear true faith and allegiance to the same. They do whatever it takes to serve and protect their country! They present their bodies as a living sacrifice, which is their reasonable service.
As Christians we must do the same! We do whatever it takes to defend the faith! We live in truth, we live holy and just lives! We deny ourselves and live for Christ! As GOD is merciful to us, we must be merciful to others! We spread the word that God is good and His will prevails! We present our bodies and our lives as a living sacrifice!
God of all gods, Father of the faithful,
We live for You! We live holy and just lives! We pledge to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, living in truth with good character and integrity that remains solid and stands the test of time! We leave our mark for Jesus! We live for Your will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven! We honor and glorify your name until the end! In Jesus’ name, we defend the faith! Amen!
