Thirty Days of Prayer - Day Fifteen


Mathew 4:19 –  19 He said to them, “Follow me, and I will turn you into fishers of people!”  

Genesis 22:9 – 9 When they came to the place God had told him about, Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood on it. Next he tied up his son Isaac and placed him on the altar on top of the wood. The blunder many believers make I to think that, the last thing that God wants from them is the sacrifice of death, but when we carefully look at the passage above, we realize that God is interested on the sacrifice through death which enables us to do what Christ Jesus did.  

We therefore need to understand that sacrificing our lives actually means – this is not to mean that I am literally willing to go to death with Him, but I am willing to be identifies with His death on the cross by sacrificing my life to God. This kind of sacrifice is not one that makes us give up things for God, but one that allows us to sacrificially allow God to live in our hearts, directing us and leading us into His glorious presence every day. God does not tell us to give up our possessions just for the sake of giving them out for Him.  

We simply need to position ourselves in a place of identity with the death of Christ, then shall we enter into a relationship with God whereby we can sacrifice our lives to Him. It is absolutely useless to literally give up your life for God through death. For Christ died for us that we might live. God wants us to be living sacrifices. Therefore, allow Him to have authority and preeminence over ism to have authority and preeminence over your life. Let him have all your powers that have been saved and sanctified through Jesus Christ. This is what is acceptable before God.
