Good morning people who follow the example of Jesus Christ
Psalm 4:5 NIV Offer the sacrifices of the righteous and trust in the Lord.
The sacrifice of Jesus when He laid down His life even to death was pleasing to the Father because it was authored by the Father.
And so too is the measure of the sacrifices in our lives.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 is a scripture we looked at only recently, but in this context, it comes back to mind. We clearly read that sacrifices are only pleasing to God if the motivation is LOVE, and the motivation can only be LOVE it they are authored by LOVE Himself.
So today, my encouragement is simple:
Let’s be people who live sacrificial lives; lives that give, but also lives that give what God has authored and given to us.
