Grace breeds growth
One of the most amazing parts of our faith is the way scripture implies that forgiveness creates change in us. I’ve been bought with a price, Jesus gave up everything for me, and in return I should also give up everything for him. This isn’t earning our salvation and it’s not making up for our salvation. It is, however, a very healthy response to something so amazing as the unconditional love of God.
When it comes to the sacrifices and the changes we make for God how do you view them? Do you see your change as something you are required to do? Are you struggling with how much is too much? Or have you realized that the best thing we can do is surrender everything we have over to him? He has gone to such great lengths to show us his love for us, and to make this possible, why wouldn’t we want to trust more and more of our life to his hands?
