BE A LIVING SACRIFICE
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 293| October 19, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
Ephesians 5:2 (KJV)
One mindset that will help the child of God to fully yield their lives to walk in the Love of Christ and be all that God wants them to be is for them to sacrifice their lives as an offering to God. Until we make this decision, we will find it very hard yielding to the love of Christ that has been born into our spirits by the Holy Ghost. Paul called this the living sacrifice in the book of Romans.
Romans 12:1 (KJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. To be a living sacrifice is to sentence yourself to death whiles living. It is to consider your life given and dedicated to God and his cause and no longer yours. When a person is able to get to this point in their heart, they no longer trust in themselves because they've entrusted themselves to the care of God.
2 Corinthians 1:9 (KJV) But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: This means you are no longer moved by the actions and inactions of men, you live fully for God. You live for God irrespective and independent of the praise or insults of men.
The reason Jesus could easily walk in love to his hurt even unto death was because of this mindset. Until we can sacrifice our lives here on earth, we will not be fully useable to God; we will love our lives so much we will not love to suffer for His purpose and do what He commands us.
