Sacrifice, By Joy W.


By Joy W.

John 3:16 – 21
Everyone who desires anything must be ready to sacrifice. Life is full of sacrifices and God gave us one beautiful, wonderful and unfathomable example of how He showed His love to mankind through sacrifice. And as the song writer writes “Grace who will earn than a man will sacrifice himself for a brother?"  Only God will do such and so He sacrificed His only son so that on entire world will be saved forever. That is sacrifice. And so He did not come to condemn the world but rather through Him the world must be saved. Every good seed of sacrifice sowed always sprouts good fruits as well.
If you want to pass exams as a student, you must sacrifice a little sleep and a little comfort to learn, by sitting up late to learn, to get what you want. A mother will have to sacrifice her sleep to sit up and watch her children sleep before she herself sleeps, and that is sacrifice. And in the same way you would sacrifice a dress or some food for a friend in need. You may not get a physical exchange but you would have that inner joy of helping a brother and a friend.
Do unto others as you want others to do unto you and the more you sacrifice for the physical and spiritual well-being of others the more people see it needful to do for you, too.
And whenever you do any of these things (sacrificing) you feel like everybody should do the same, and you are unashamed. See, nobody doing evil will let people see, and so are the occults and the secret worshippers who worship the Devil (it is done in secret, in the dark). Every robber fears the police because what he does is evil. Darkness is always not able to stand light - not in any manner - and whenever light shines, darkness is not able to contain it. Man loves darkness and hates lights because nobody doing evil brings it to light.
So walk in the light!
