What Can I Sacrifice (or Surrender) for God?

This is what God is concerned about:
  • that we have hearts that say "Yes" to Him
  • that we sacrificially lay down our lives for Him and believe that it's worth it to do so
"For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God." Hebrews 13:14-16

God does not expect all of us to sacrifice the same thing. It will be different for each of us.

Maybe God wants you to sacrifice (or surrender):
  • a good paying career to do a Christian related job or ministry
  • your free time to spend more time ministering to your kids or serving God
  • your TV time to read devotions and the Bible to your children or yourself
  • your hobbies to spend more encouraging and supporting your husband
  • your bitterness and unforgiving attitude to pray for and encourage your husband
  • the trust that you place in your money in order to trust in God's provision for you
  • your worrying in order to step out and follow God's will for your life
  • your job in order to homeschool your children
  • materialism or your financial security in order to give more money to God
  • your past hurts to concentrate on Jesus and the needs of others
  • your personal dream to support your husband in his dream
  • an addiction to trust God to help you and comfort you

What is God calling you to sacrifice in your life?
