I am going to make this one short and sweet. Jesus Christ has called us to service by asking for our lives if necessary and there are many who truly live their lives for Him. Giving up our lives is much easier said than done when you think about all the things we have going in our lives.
If we had lived during the time of Christ I wonder if many of those He encountered felt the same? I know that we do have an example of the prince who could not leave his wealth or those who Jesus challenged when He spoke of giving up their lives for His sake. With both of these examples I think it is very obvious that we today in our “modern” time are no different.
We are to be working in God’s Kingdom now, not later, so how do we start? First we believe, then we love, then we roll up our sleeves.
Praise God for all that He has given both great and small!
