“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
The word ‘bridge’ signifies: railway, conduit, connection, association etc. And when you look at the word sacrifice – give up, forgo, let go, surrender etc. Beloved, for more elucidation of the bridge of sacrifice; it is the connection of letting go whatever that refused to go for your rising.
Sacrifice is the association or relationship of total surrender. Sacrifice is the price of rising. Sacrifice carries the weight of your wealth. Sacrifice is the highest level of giving; because it carries the highest level of living. A life without sacrifice ends up with no meaningful living!
In our preceding scripture; God originated the highest sacrifice for humanity. The sacrifice, which God exhibited, was the bridge God and man met for divine transaction of life. God did not just release the sacrifice; but first of all, the sacrifice was fueled and pushed out by divine love, which couldn`t slack for operation. Second, the sacrifice was supervised by His strong passion for man. Third, the sacrifice was the only valuable and available entity in the whole creation. Fourth, the sacrifice broke the laws of creation by turning the invisibility into visibility. Fifth, the sacrifice was to move from its highest position to the lowest position – turning the dominator into diminutive for the realization of domination, which is the purpose of the sacrifice. In other words, Christ became low so we can become high in life.
Sacrifice is not a convenient exhibit, because the entity involves carries the bigger part of your living. Sacrifice refers to giving all; and not half! Sacrifice refers to the bigger part, and not the smaller part! Sacrifice is releasing all, in order to getting all in return.
Sacrifice is not a man`s wish; it is God`s wish. In other words, sacrifice is not what you willingly give out; it is what God willingly collect from you. If your sacrifice does not shake you after letting it go; then it is not a sacrifice. The sacrifice God gave shook Him! Because the entity for the sacrifice was His most valuable and only, in His kingdom; and it was to be given to people (you and I) that never quailed for it! No true sacrifice is given out of conveniences. Every sacrifice is given at the bridge of inconveniences.
Don`t you ever forget this as long as you live; sacrifice is the highest level of given and surrender to God and man. And if your sacrifice has never shook your ground of comfort, which you gave away; then it is not a sacrifice. When you truly exhibit sacrifice, it will quiver your ground; because the outcome must also trembles your world!
Today`s Spiritual Capsule:
No true sacrifice is given out of conveniences. Every sacrifice is given at the bridge of inconveniences. Sacrifice carries the weight of your wealth.
