Åρ☺ṧ☂◎ℓї¢ ℐᾔ﹩℘ḯґαт☤☺η : Our sacrifice should cost us something great, so that the Lord will be pleased with our sacrifice. Father gave His only Son which cost Him his everything, what are we willing to give to Him?
It is easy to give our time, talent, treasure and yet not give our body and life to Jesus Christ our Lord. When we give our life to Jesus and surrrender it to Him, our very motivation will make us to live sacrificially to fullfill God's plan, purpose and His will for our lives. God's true New Jerusalem saints will always live by sacrifice in their mindset toward God, seeing Jesus as their forerunner and example to follow (Heb 12:22-24; 6:20; 1 Peter 2:21; 2 Cor 8:9). But those who have allowed the Mystery Babylonian spirit to influence them, will live in the same way as any other person in the world (1 Chr 21:24; Rev 17:5-6). Babylonian lifestyle is indulgence and the babylonic spirit makes people to give to God only what they want and that too when they feel it is comfortable to give. Man's power, ego and strength of the flesh is worshipped in disguise in the name of God in this false religion.
The Bible tells us to give our body as a living sacrifice which is a reasonable and acceptable sacrifice to our God (Rom 12:1)! When we give to God more and more area of our mind that controls our body daily, smoking, pornography, greed, covetousness and all uncleanness will cease and God will be glorified through our lives (1 Peter 4:1). It is our daily surrender and sacrifice of our body to God that makes our earthly life a living monument of our loving and living Christ in heaven. May God help us live a self-sacrificing life day after day for HIS GLORY!
