Sac- ri- fice.... what is it really? Sometimes in my naivety I am tempted to think I know.I am a mother after all,is that sacrifice?
This word has been on my mind frequently in the last few weeks.I am not sure why, but a series of events prompted me to ponder what a life of sacrifice would look like.
I have decided in my heart that sacrifice is something I should strive for always, but may never truely attain because humanity is indeed fickle in nature.
This weekend ironically two people we know, recieved life from the sacrifice of another life.One,my husbands nephew, underwent a kidney transplant.He is only 21.The other man a friend from our church recieved a lung transplant.Two lives transformed,people rejoice, while two lives were given,and people mourn.
Sac-ri-fice...what is it really.I don't think I know, but thankfully I know the One who does and who has paid it in full.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes on Him,should not perish, but have eternal life.John 3:16.
Thank-you Jesus for sacrifice.
