There are people out there who know what it means to put their lives on the line for someone or something else. Police and members of the military armed forces deal with that kind of choice every day. Knowing and believing in what Jesus Christ did for us and how we will benefit from [and are benefitting from already] His sacrifice when all is said and done, then, may I ask what then is reasonable for us to give? Is a life of service to Him reasonable? Personally, I can say that what I have received, while in service to Him, is more than enough of a reward. I, however, believe there will be so much more to come! Praise the Lord! May we feel blessed, now and throughout eternity, by our willingness to serve Him. Amen.
Verses: Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
