Your faith makes you offer your lives as a sacrifice in serving God.
(Philippians 2:17 NCV
We sacrifice our physical bodies through diet and exercise with the reward of looking and feeling good. We sacrifice our minds in educational institutions with the reward of a diploma that benefits us with desired employment. We sacrifice our hearts for our family with the reward of love returned. God sacrificed His only Son Jesus on a cross with the reward of obtaining millions of new children who have believed in Him. We live to sacrifice ourselves in service to God with the reward of eternal blessings in heaven.
