Offering Spiritual Sacrifices

5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5

So what exactly are these spiritual sacrifices we are offering? Well, in Psalm 19:14, David wrote this:

May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer

That’s one spiritual sacrifice.

Paul wrote in Philippians 4:18 that he received gifts of love/support, “I received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.”

And of course Paul wrote in Romans 12:1 that we were to offer ourselves “as living sacrifices holy and acceptable to God which is your spiritual service of worship.”

Those three sacrifices are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. We can make these sacrifices every day without changing much in our routines.
