"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works... We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works..." Ephesians 2:8-10
It's a word we are all familiar with in one way or another... Sacrifice.
Yesterday, we remembered and honored our Armed Service soldiers, many who sacrificed their life for the safety and freedom of our country.
And then there is our Jesus. He made the ultimate sacrifice, paying for our sins with His life, so we may have eternal life. An unmerited gift, yet freely given and extended to all. I want to remember this every day.
Father, i need to sacrifice selfish ways and wants. Help me live in a way to create the desire and hunger in others to know You and Your wondrous Love.
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
