The Psalmist has written “I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.”(119:15) An important part of our devotional life is to meditate, to ponder, to think deeply about the ways of the Lord, and what it means for us. One verse, even a half of a verse can occupy many minutes, even over repeated days. I was looking this morning at the second half of Romans 6:13. “…present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.” What does that mean in daily practice? The beginning of the chapter discussed our dying and rising with Christ through our baptism. It then goes on to speak of how we are to understand ourselves as those in Christ Jesus who have been freed from the law. How do we present ourselves to God, and our members as instruments of righteousness? I leave that for you to meditate upon.
