Sacrifice

I have a word for today.

The word is sacrifice.

Sacrifice is giving up something of value now
for something of greater value later.

The principle of sacrifice is used in sports – ask a baseball fan. It is willingly taking an out to get a run.

We see it in the Bible. In the Old Testament, we read in the first few chapters of animals being given as a sacrifice. These animals were of great value but they were used for greater spiritual value later on.

Sacrifice is giving up something great now
for something greater in the future.

The Bible tells us that we are to live a life of sacrifice, to give up something important now for something greater in the future.

What are you willing to give as a sacrifice?

  • Can you sacrifice your time to help at church?
  • Can you sacrifice your money to help further the gospel?
  • Can you sacrifice your possessions to help someone in need?

Of course the greatest example of sacrifice is Jesus. He gave His life as a sacrifice for us. He gave up something great - His life - for you and your future.

Sacrifice is giving up something of value now
for something of greater value later.

Jesus sacrificed His very life so that we can experience life with Him eternally.

He sacrificed His all.

What can you sacrifice for Him?
