VOLUNTEERING


John 10:17-18


"I lay down my life......No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord." NIV


"I lay down my life.....No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself." KJV


We do the same thing as Christians. We don't follow a set of do's and don'ts. By choice, out of love and faith in Jesus Christ, we give up catering to our sinful nature and we willingly serve by living and walking in the Spirit of God. Our Lord gave up all He had to take our place on the cross. He did it willingly by giving Himself. Giving our lives to Him is such a small sacrifice in comparison.


Heavenly Father, help us to always remember the sacrifice You made for us from giving up Your heavenly status all the way to the humiliating cross. All we have to give are our lives here on earth. We ask that You take our lives and use them for Your glory. In Jesus' name, Amen.
