Don’t let the Word get old to you. Why do we lose our zeal?
Full Sacrifice of Our Lives
Rom. 12:1-2. Present your whole self as a sacrifice to God and serve Him fully. In the Old Testament a sacrificial animal was totally killed in order to give the blood as a sacrifice. If we don’t totally give ourselves over, then we lose our excitement because we are not getting the entire benefit.
Matt. 16:24-27. Jesus is saying don’t hold back. Give your life to God. Are there areas in your life where you need to give more fully?
Phil. 2:17. Be willing to give yourself fully. This will bring joy.
True Love as Our Motivation
Rom. 12:9-10. The only real reason to fully give of yourself is genuine love for what you are doing.
Matt. 24:12-13. Many people will not stay faithful because they don’t have a strong enough love. Learn to love God.
Don’t be taken away from God. Stay faithful to God and work to make your love for the work and The Word stronger
Rom. 14:5,22-23. Live you life so that you don’t hear your inner voice telling you that you have done something wrong.
Rom. 2:14-16. On the Day of Judgment our secrets will be laid open. People everywhere have a conscience and we all want forgiveness and help with that burden.
1 Tim. 1:18-19. Keep working on your conscience to keep it in good order so that your faith won’t be lost.
