Sacrifice is the word we're talking about to today. Jesus was called the lamb of God and he was sacrificed on the cross for the sins of mankind; God gave his only begotten son, so we could have life more abundantly. Fathers and mothers always sacrifice much for thrier children . We sacrifice so that our children can have better lives;then we did,: we also sacrifice so they can have better educations than we did. God did the same; when he sacrifice Jesus for us and our sins: any real and loving parent will do the same for their children.
Children of God is expected to make certain sacrifices to Jesus; because he sacrificed himself for us. There shouldn't be anything we want do for Jesus Christ our Saviour. Sometimes we have to give up something for the good of the cause, that cause is loving serving God our father. Giving up special things is hard for us sometimes, but if we just realize how precious life is; and the fact that Jesus, gave his for us to have eternal life, the n you will know how precious a gift that: Jesus gave us all and sacrificing want be a problem, it will be an honor.
