Does My Sacrifice Live?

Think about it!   Gen 22:9  Sacrifice our lives so through death to self, He might live.
I Thess 5:23 Your whole spirit.
Ps 13  He goes to the depth of our being.
Acts 26:18  To open their eyes that they may receive sight.
Luke 23:26  What my obedience to God costs other people.
Mk 4:10,34  Have you ever been alone with God?  He takes you through the crooks and crannies of your character.  The last conceit to go is that we understand ourselves.  Sometimes affliction, heartache, temptation, disappointments, sickness, thwarted affections, broken friendships, or new friendships.  The disciples were perplexed.  We try to understand others but we can’t until God gets us alone and we see ourselves.
Isa 6:8  Called of God.  Isaiah heard the call and answered it. The voice of God.  Most can only hear their own voice.
Do you walk in white? Your funeral Rom 6:4
Gal 1:15-16  The vocation of the natural life.
It is the Lord.  John 20:28  Are we more loyal to service to Jesus than to Him personally.
Gen 15:12  Horror of great darkness.  13 yrs of silence, in those yrs self-sufficiency was destroyed, no more possibility of relying on common sense ways, a time of discipline not dis-pleasure.  God disciplines us so we know He is real.
John 3:3  Are you fresh for everything?  Staleness is a sign something is out of joint with God.  Freshness does not come from obedience, but from the Holy Spirit, obedience keeps us in the light as God is in the light.  Guard your relationship with Christ – be jealous over it.
Recall what God remembers.  Jer 2:2  I remember the kindness of thy youth.
