Our life is not our own.

"Wait on the Lord: and be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord." Psalm 27:14

How do you describe yourself?

Are you...

Giving or Serving or are you interested in the constant welfare of others?

Do you have selfish ambitions?

"Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.

Look not everyman on his own things, but everyman also on the things of others." Philippians 2:3-4

That doesn't mean to be a nosey rosey.

We are to lay aside any selfishness and treat others with respect and common courtesy.

We need to have a genuine interest in others showing them we care and are not out just to get something in return.

Being a child of God means we are to live sacrificially.

When we live sacrificially we generally have to have to give up something.

We sometimes have to sacrifice our wants, our desires, or even or needs.

Sacrifice can mean taking on something that you really don't want to do so someone else will not have to bear the burden.

Jesus can and done that for us!

He took the punishment for our sins when He died upon the cross.

Our earthly sacrifice can not even compare to that of Jesus.

Jesus laid down His life for us.

What have you done for Him?

We must lay our life down for others.

We must lay our life down for the gospel.

We must do what must needs be done whole heartedly.

We must remove ourselves from the standards of success set by the world and look upon the Word of God for our validation.

"Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed." John 6:27

Lord, draw me close to you, bring me by the way of the cross as I give my life totally to you.
