• “There’s a big difference between a life that’s a performance, and a life that’s an offering — One holds us captive. The other sets us free.” – Susie Larson

Loving Sacrifice by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/06/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The apostle Paul wrote, “Though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.” He says that our sacrifices have no spiritual significance if they’re not motivated by love.

Let me offer a modern paraphrase:

“Though I keep a spotless house and though I’m faithful in church attendance and though I work in the church nursery every other Sunday and though I lead a Bible study or teach a Sunday school class and though I homeschool my kids, and all that that requires, if I do it without love, I am nothing. And if I make enormous sacrifices for my family but do it out of a sense of obligation or a desire to impress rather than love, it’s worth nothing.”

Do you want your life to count for something? Ask God to fill you with His love.

  • “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss
