SACARIFICE

INTRO: WHAT IS SACRIFICE?

1: GIVING UP SOMETHING VALUABLE OR IMPORTANT FOR SOMEBODY OR SOMETHING ELSE CONSIDERED TO BE OF MORE VALUE OR IMPORTANCE.

A) WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR LIFE?

B) SOMETHING?

C) SOMEONE?

D) MATERIAL?

POINT: PEOPLE HAVE A LARGE ARRAY OF THINGS THEY CONSIDER IMPORTANT IN THEIR LIVES. MANY ARE NEVER AS IMPORTANT AS THEY THINK THEY ARE.

2: WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE UP?

A) FOR FAMILY

B) FOR FRIEND

C) FOR A STRANGER

POINT: THE QUESTION IS EASILY ANSWERED. FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS ONES WE WILL HELP. WE WILL SACRIFICE THINGS TO HELP THEM. WE WILL GIVE THINGS BECAUSE OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEM ARE OF MORE IMPORTANCE.

BODY: 1 JOHN 3:16

1: WE LOVE GOD

A) HOW TRUE IS THAT STATEMENT IN YOUR LIFE?

B) MANY MAKE THIS CLAIM

C) FEW ACTUALLY BACK THEIR WORDS UP WITH ACTION.

POINT: HEREBY PERCEIVE WE THE LOVE OF GOD, THAT MEANS TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND THE LOVE GOD HAS FOR US. WE SAY WE LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE LOVED US, WE MAKE THAT BIBLICAL CLAIM. DO WE REALLY SEE AND UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD’S LOVE IS FOR US.

2: LAID DOWN HIS LIFE

A) JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR ME

B) HIS BLOOD FREES ME FROM MY SIN

C) THE WORK OF THE CROSS IS WHAT WE SEE TO SIGNIFY THE LOVE OF GOD.

D) WE SEE THE LOVE IT TOOK TO BEAR A CROSS TO CALVARY.

POINT: IT IS IMPORTANT TO GRASP THAT SACRIFICAL LOVE THAT GOD HAS FOR US. HE ENDURED THE HEARTBREAK OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST BEING REJECTED AND CRUCIFIED FOR OUR SIN.

3: OUR PART

A) WE OUGHT TO LAY DOWN OUR LIVES

B) FOR THE BRETHREN

C) SACRIFIC THINGS IN OUR LIVES TO HELP OTHERS

D) LET GOD AND THE WORK OF THE KINGDOM BECOME MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHER THINGS IN OUR LIVES

POINT: GOD’S KINGDOM IS BUILT WITH PEOPLE, PEOPLE OF ALL KINDS OF BACKGROUNDS AND BLOOD LINES. BUT THEY ALL HAAVE ONE THING IN COMMON, THEY ALL HAVE THE UNITY IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.

CONCLUSION: THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS CHRIST IS WHAT BROUGHT US TOGETHER THIS MORNING. HIS SHED BLOOD IS WHAT SETS US APART FROM THE WORLD. MANY MEN AND WOMEN BEFORE US HAVE SHED THEIR BLOOD FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST AS WELL. THE MODEL, OR EXAMPLE WE HAVE IS CALVARY. WE SHOULD LOVE CHRIST AND ONE ANOTHER ENOUGH TO SACRIFICE FOR THE WELL BEING OF OUR BROTHER’S AND SISTERS AND FOR GOD AND HIS HOLY HOUSE!!!
