making sacrifices

“Brothers and sisters:
Through Jesus, let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise,
that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have;
God is pleased by sacrifices of that kind.”

via USCCB | NAB – February 5, 2011.

To sacrifice…to bring something to God’s altar (the way Abraham brought Isaac) and ‘offer it up’. We have nothing of our own that could ever be good enough to present to Him…or do we? So we bring ourselves and lay ourselves upon His altar. Our lips to offer Him praise…our lives to glorify Him…our hands and bodies to serve Him. We bring all our earthly posessions and all our gifts and we lay them down to be used for His purposes. We don’t need to fear losing in this loving exchange…we can’t outgive God…it’s a win-win situation.
