Sacrifice

Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides (with) You, I desire nothing on earth.
Psalms 73:25 NASB

Whoa. . . I have been pondering this verse for awhile, asking myself, “Is Jesus my only desire? Is He enough? Sufficient? All I need? All I want?”
Can I truthfully say, like Paul, “that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,”?
And then to absorb His selfless act of ridicule, abuse and death. “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” That is what Jesus did for you and me! “Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” Shouldn’t we also be willing to sacrifice our desires and surrender our will for such a great act of love that Jesus did for us? . . Opening the door to the abundant love God has for us. “God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” (her).
Philippians 3:8//John 15:13/Ephesians 5:2/1 John 4:16 NASB

It was all in for Jesus. It’s all or nothing. Are you in?

🌹Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Colossians 3:17 NASB
I said to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good besides You.”
Psalms 16:2 NASB

Continually Seeking Him,
