I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
(Romans 12:1 NLT)

When we are in love with someone we try and win their attention through our actions. Love is an action that involves sacrifice which means we have to give up something of value and put to death our own selfish interests. When we worship God we give Him something of value. We offer up to Him our time, talents and treasures as a sacrifice for all that He has done for us. The Bible says “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants.”(Psalm 116:15) When we die to ourselves through the loving sacrifices we make for others we win the attention of the lover of our souls.
