Faith Based Friday: Servant’s Sacrifice

May 16, 2008

SACRIFICE.
When Most Christians hear that word, they tend to think of the sacrifice that GOD made in sending down HIS one and only SON to die for our sins. It is true that JESUS death on the cross for us is the essential sacrifice of all time.

Has it crossed our minds though that sacrifice is our duty as well? We may or may not be called to physically give our lives for the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST. We are called to give of our time, our energy, our petty earthly possessions as a sacrifice of praise to GOD.

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to his name. {Hebrews 13:15}

It begins with a prayer, but it must not end there. Pray seeking GOD in what HE would have you to give in sacrifice to him. Maybe it is giving up 2 hours of tv to address cards to shutins. Maybe it is giving up that $20 you were going to blow on junk food to a local food ministry. Pray. and then ACT.
