A true Christian must do four types of sacrifices for worship God  in his life on earth! 


 
First sacrifice  is, “I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship” (Rom.12:1). True Christian should keep a separation from evil and its works and should keep holiness in body and acceptable the his/her body to God. This is a true sacrifice in the world. Through this  sacrifice the follower of Lord Jesus can keep holy spirit in his body. This is very important for all Christian.  “Only let us hold true to what we have attained” (Phil.3:16). This can be achieving only through keeping the mind and body holy and acceptable to God. “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from unchastity” (1Thes.4:3).
Second  sacrifice  is, “I have received full payment, and more; I am filled, having received from Epaphrodi'tus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God.  And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus”  (Phil.4:18,19). If God’s people give money or other helps to other people who belongs to God is also counted a sacrifice! But it is important that we must make sure that the person getting our help is not belongs to devil. Helping devils and devils people is not a sacrifice! True God is not taking glory from that sacrifice! We should ensure that  the holy sprite is living in that person! If we help a person who belongs to God , we will gets rewards from God!  “Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?  If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and that temple you are” (1Cor.3:16,17). 
We should give our help to God’s temple (God’s house), not to devil’s temple. “Bring the full tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house; and thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing” (Mal.3:10). Those who helps devils and devils house, gets rewards from hell that will spoil  every things  and destroy everlasting life!!! “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God” (Heb.13:16). This is also called the sacrifices of sharing.
Third  sacrifice is - “Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name” (Heb.13:15). "Let everything that breathes praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!” (Ps.150:6). “My mouth is filled with thy praise, and with thy glory all the day” (Ps.71:8). “Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Phil.4:6). “For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God”  (2Cor.4:15).
 We must praise Lord our God with our lips, heart and mind. So we must say always praise the Lord Jesus Christ! Praise God holy spirit! Praise God Jehovah! with our lips and mind! This  sacrifice is must for  all Christians  during his/her life time on earth for escaping  from devils and its agents up to the time of death! If you repeat this sacrifice for few minutes then you can understand that the devil changes you’re your thoughts in order to  block your worship I mean the sacrifice of praises by saying Lords name!  But if you continue this sacrifice after defeating devil  you will gets God’s blessing and protection from devils! “But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them,  and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and every one's fetters were unfastened” (Acts.16 :25,26). If somebody is praising  God by singing not only he is releasing but also his neighbors too!
Fourth sacrifice is – “But on some points I have written to you very boldly by way of reminder, because of the grace given me by God  to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit” (Rom.15:15,16). “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light”(1Pet.2:9). All Christians who are living with holy spirit is called royal priests! Official duty of a priest is stand in between the people who do not know God and  give offerings and sacrifice to God. So the Christians so called royal priests should work I mean preach about Lord Jesus Christ in between the people those who don’t know Lord. Thus royal priests can sacrifice their body a true living sacrifice to God and offer the Gentiles body and sprite to God by teaching them about true worship of God!
“He fulfils the desire of all who fear him, he also hears their cry, and saves them” (Ps.145:19). “He provides food for those who fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant” (Ps.111:5). “As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him”(Ps.103:13). “The fear of the LORD prolongs life, but the years of the wicked will be short” (Prov.10:27).
Are we able to worship  Mighty Supreme God (Father God, Jehovah) without worshiping Lord and God Jesus Christ? 
 “ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men” (John.1:1-5). Christ was the word exist with Mighty father God in the beginning! “ And again, when he brings the first-born into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him.”(Heb.1:6).Christ was not created by Father God but He born from Him! So He is just like Father God! “I and the Father are one.”(John.10:30). Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; how can you say, `Show us the Father'?”(John.14:9). “They are Israelites, and to them belong the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs, and of their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ. God who is over all be blessed for ever. Amen” (Rom.9:4,5). "For in him the whole fulness of deity dwells bodily, and you have come to fulness of life in him, who is the head of all rule and authority” “who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men” (Phil.2:6,7),  (Col.2:9,10). 
 “The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him” (John.5:22,23). We are worshiping Father God Jehovah so we have to worship Lord Jesus Christ too. “And behold, Jesus met them and said, "Hail!" And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him” (Matt.28:9). “Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted”( Matt.28:16,17). Some people doubted to worship our Lord Jesus Christ, but we can worship Him without any doubt! 
“Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands,  saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!"  And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all therein, saying, "To him who sits upon the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!" And the four living creatures said, "Amen!" and the elders fell down and worshiped.”(Rev.5:11-14). “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: "I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.  Who is like me? Let him proclaim it, let him declare and set it forth before me. Who has announced from of old the things to come? Let them tell us what is yet to be”( Isa.44:6,7).
