Service and Sacrifice posted by John Sorensen on May 20, 2019

Where have you seen examples of service and sacrifice? Certainly, around Memorial Day, we see tributes to our fallen soldiers and added thankfulness to those currently serving. But have you really thought about their sacrifice for us? They leave behind their families and the comfort of home to step out into the unknown for me and you.

Every morning, our service men and women wake up, put their feet on the floor and get ready for their day. They make the choice to strap on their boots and report for duty. When you’re living a life of service, you have to be intentional. You have to be focused. And you have to be able to put the needs of others before your own.

They don’t have to do it. No one is forcing them to defend us. They willingly step out and lay down their lives for us so we can be free.

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Jesus left His home in Heaven – angels all around, singing His praise, so that he could report for duty. He intentionally laid down His life so that we could be free. The Gospel is the ultimate example of service and sacrifice. The sinless Savior did what He was not obligated to do because He loves us.

What do we do about that? We could never repay Him for what He’s done for us. We’ll never be able scratch the surface of the sacrifice He made. But we can report for duty. We can share the Good News so others can know what is the height and depth of the love of God!

This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for resources to help you share the best example of service and sacrifice the world has ever known.

May God richly bless you this week as you learn to be a servant of Jesus!
