The Gospel is Our Treasure Part 3: Being like Jesus means Sacrifice
Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. - Ephesians 5:1-2 (NLT)
Jesus while on Earth was and still is the greatest example of a giver if we needed one. His sacrifice was his core mission and even though He was God, He “emptied” himself and became a servant. (Philippians 2:5-7). And we too are to do the same. Jesus gave himself in his incarnation, his sinless life, and in his death which gave us His free gift salvation.
When we decide to follow Jesus, we must know what it means to sacrifice. Sacrifice is one way we can follow Jesus. It may be hard at times because living as a servant can be difficult. However, anyone of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. – Luke 14:33
