Expanding Horizons

God is expanding my horizons.....My life is in the hands of Jesus....

Lately the Lord has been pressing upon my heart the need to present my life as a living sacrifice...
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service

Rom 12:2 And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, and ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God

How true it is indeed..the need of the hour in my life....as a youth with conflicting choices and desires..I would be totally free if I have realised that my life is a living sacrifice...We recently
in our youth meeting studied the life of sadhu Sundar Singh.....What an amazing life that man of
God lead....He at the age of 16 understood the meaning of taking up the cross and in a very true sense left "ALL" for Christ's sake. There is true growth only through pain. A Christianity that
doesn't cost me any thing is a false Christianity....... Truly in the word's of Sadhu Sundar Singh, " Diamonds do not dazzle with beauty unless they are cut.When cut the rays of the sun
fall on them and make them shine with wonderful colours! So when we are cut into shape by
the cross we shall shine as jewels in the Kingdom of God"

Dear Lord...I pray thet never may anything of my self ever hinder the working of the cross in
my life....Give me the strength to endure and bear the shame for your Name's sake.Help me
to present my life as a sacrifice in your hands..Amen


Very true my dear sister...

Php 1:29 For to you it is given on behalf of Christ not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for His sake,

but it is also written ...

Heb 12:2 looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, who FOR THE JOY that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God.

2Co 4:17 For the lightness of our present affliction works out for us a FAR MORE EXCELLENT ETERNAL WEIGHT OF GLORY,
2Co 4:18 we not considering the things which are seen, but the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are not lasting, but the things which are not seen are everlasting.

Is it truly a sacrifice when we get much more than what we give!?

O what a glorious gospel!!

Thankyou brother..that's very true..we will get in Heaven much more than we have to give.... Praise God!!
