Sacrifices for Eternal Life

Happy Jesus Day:

“For a man to lay down his all, his character and reputation, his honor, his good name among men, his house, his land, his brothers and sisters, his wife/husband, children, even his own life also-counting all things for the excellency of the knowledge of Jesus Christ-requires more than mere belief or supposition that he is doing the will of God, but actual knowledge, realizing that, when these sufferings are ended, he will enter into enteral rest, and be a partaker of the glory of God. Therefore, a religion that does not require the sacrifice of all things never has the power sufficient to produce the faith necessary unto life and salvation, for, from the first existence of man, the faith essential unto the enjoyment of life and salvation never could be obtained without the sacrifice of ALL earthly things that men do know that they are doing the things that are pleasing in the sight of GOD.

  1. Thank you Lord God for your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. My desire is to sacrifice ALL things of this world for you. This is what you did by dying on the Cross for my sins. I have experienced my good character , name, honour, and reputation being scandalized in this world..often for reasons unknown to me. I am so GRATEFUL that you laid your life down for me, a wrech undone . The suffering you endured before and while you were on the cross is insurmoundable. Lord, you are teaching me that if you can overcome the WORLD….
    so can I. What makes me think that I would be exempt from persecution ? I will be able to truly sacrife ALL things of this world, day by day with your strength , grace and mercy. Only you know what is best for me. If I have done anything that has not been pleasing to you, please forgive me thought, fought, sought, deed, omission and comission. I want to continue being convicted, which will allow for correction and growth in my life. This let’s me know that I am striving upward to you and not downward by Satan’s antick’s ,plots and schemes .Hallelujah Jesus!!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
