No Greater Love

Galatians_2-20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me

Galatians_2-20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2: 20

 

Romans_5-8: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans_5-8: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

God loves us so much that He sent His son to die for us. There was and never will be a greater sacrifice than this.

 

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Jesus didn’t die because we deserved it, but because He loved each one of us so much that He was willing to sacrifice Himself on our behalf. Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

 

John_10-10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John_10-10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Jesus Christ died on a cross so that you might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). This was the ultimate sacrifice; someone dying so you might live.

 

The story of our salvation is made all the more powerful because it was a perfect man-God in human form-who died for the sins of us all.

 

Acts_4-12: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Acts_4-12: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Acts 4:12 says, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Only through the sacrifice of God’s son are we saved and able to approach His presence.

How Much Do You Love God? How Much Are You Willing To Sacrifice Just To Show You Love Him? God Is Calling Every Believer To A Life Of Sacrifice

Matthew_22-37-3: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind

Matthew_22-37-3: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind

“He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”

 

John 21:16 (KJV)

 

 

 

The kingdom of God is not a game of convenience think of it. Somebody paid the price with His own blood. It is not something you play with or handle with kid’s gloves. It is serious business. God is calling every believer to a life of sacrifice. I challenge you today to go out of your way to serve God with all your heart, whether it is convenient or not. He deserves the best because He gave you His best; JESUS. The question you should ask yourself sincerely is; how much do I really love Him?

 

 

 

Remember that the scriptures say in John 3:16 “for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son.” Child of God, there is no way you can demonstrate love without giving something. When God was to show us how much he loved us, He gave His only Son to die for our sins. Thank God for this great love. Otherwise, where would you be today? In the same way, God wants you to spread His love to the world. If you truly love Jesus, then show it. Show it in your service to Him. Show it in evangelism. Show it as you lead your group. Show it in your relationship with your fellow members. Many times we pay lip serve to loving God. We claim to love God but we do not show His love to those around us. You cannot say you love God, if you do not show His love to your world.

 

 

 

Think of it! When last did you go through your wardrobe to look for very good clothes to bless someone with? When last did you enter a boutique to get a gift for someone who cannot afford it? When the festive seasons are approaching have you ever thought of how to ensure a family has a meal on their table? Are you just consumed with yourself, me, myself and I? Your love for God is also evident in your worship. When we talk about worship, I am not talking about singing slowly. The quality of your worship in songs, in offerings, in tithes all goes to show how much you love God. You cannot claim to love God and keep your money away from Him. No, your love for God must be total.

 

 

 

I encourage you to take a moment and think about the question today: how much do you love God? How much are you willing to sacrifice just to show you love Him? If there are areas that indict you, make amends today and love Him totally and completely. Let God depend on you in season and out of season. As you do that, He will certainly come through for you. I bless you.

The sacrifice of praise

By Him therefore let s offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name (Hebrews 13:15)

The sacrifice of praise are the confessions, declarations, psalms, hymns and spiritual songs of the glory, grace and goodness of God that we make unto Him. It’s different from saying, “I praise You Lord, I just thank You for everything…..”Praise is more than that. Praising God means giving thanks to His Name for definite reasons.

In the Old Testament, the priests offered specific offerings to God; they offered sacrifices of burnt offerings and burnt incense, according to the specifications of the law. We also in the New Testament are admonished to offer sacrifices of praise to God and Hebrews 13:15 clearly describes the content of the sacrifice we’ve been called to offer: “By Him (Jesus Christ) therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name.”

As you worship the Lord and adore Him, making confessions to His Name, you’re offering unto Him the sacrifice of praise. As you offer quality praise and present your body to Him as a living sacrifice, you send forth incense unto Him, and His presence rubs-off on you and overshadows you.

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word, the entrance of which has given me light and understanding today, concerning true worship! Thus, from the depths of my heart this day, I worship You for Your goodness and grace towards me, I thank You for making me a heir of the eternal salvation You wrought through Christ Jesus! Amen!
