Mark 10:21-22

"Jesus looked at him and loved him. 'One thing you
lack,' he said. 'Go, sell everything you have and
give to the poor, and you will have treasures in
heaven. Then come and follow me.' At this the man's
face fell. He went away sad, because he had great
wealth." (NIV)

"Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto
him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell
whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou
shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the
cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that saying,
and went away grieved: for he had great possessions."

Salvation, accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and
Saviour is an easy simple act of faith on our part only
because it cost God so very much. It is a free gift,
extended to ALL who will believe. If we truly believe,
we will find that it is not so easy to manifest the life of
God in our thoughts and actions. Being a follower of
Christ is not an easy mental agreement. It is living the
life of God through our daily lives rather than living out
what we think is right. That's not so easy.

Heavenly Father, the only way we can every repay you
for the greatest gift in all of eternity, that is salvation
through your Son Jesus Christ, is to give you all that we
have. All that we have is our lives and worldly
possessions. Take our lives and all we have and use
them for your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Hi Bobbi,

This morning I found myself confessing Romans 12:1, acknowledging that presenting myself to God as a living sacrifice is reasonable, fair, something I'm capable of doing; it's what I choose to do.

Even doing this doesn't measure up to what He's done for me, but it is my way of expressing my thanks and gratitude.

Blessings and peace.
