We can read in the Bible how the mighty men of God have greatly sacrificed their lives for the Lord. They made a life-changing decision to serve the Lord with a commitment that there was no turning back. But this was without a guarantee that all things would be well with them. Some have been persecuted for preaching the gospel. Some have lost their jobs. Family and friends have even turned away from some of them. Despite all of these, we should remember that God never fails to notice all our sacrifices. He assures us that He can smell the sweet aroma of our sacrifices.
“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.” Matthew 19:29
Is there a part of our life that requires sacrifice, but we find ourselves holding it back? I pray that we will choose to go wherever God takes us, no matter what the cost. Life will surely be a memorable journey because we know that all of these will be a fragrant offering to our God.
Sold out for Jesus,
