A sacrificial life isn’t a life of emptiness and pain. It’s a life of abundance and joy. A sacrificial life is a resurrected life, a life of hope, promise, fulfillment and purpose.
The reward is great when the risk is great. Abandonment to seek fulfillment. Poverty to seek wealth. Death to find life. Sacrifice temporal life for eternal life.
Jesus gave His life for you. Can you give your life for Him? He sacrificed everything temporarily. That’s what He asks of you. You need to temporarily give up your life. It is not your own. You don’t have rights. But He gives you His life forever, permanently. Then you will have all the rights of a child of the King.
