Imagine my surprise as a totally devoted follower of the Lord Jesus Christ who loves and serves God with all my heart when He called me to make an even greater sacrifice of my time for Him in my ministry work. I already don’t go on vacations, have a social life, and pursue most of life’s pleasures. My response? Of course!
If we truly believe Jesus Christ is Lord and died on the cross and was raised from the dead as we should, we should never ever hold back any sacrifice God almighty asks of us including concerning how we spend our time!
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1 NKJV
“Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.” 1 Peter 4:1-2 NKJV
