Bible Reading: Hebrews 10:10

Memory VerseThere is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13 (NLT)

Many people want to rise in life but they don’t know how. Today, let me introduce you to a sure pathway to soar with wings as Eagles. One sure way to come out of a cycle of pain, shame and ridicule. One sure way for continuous progress. It is the way of sacrifice. Sacrifice is the only sure way to ensure spirit participation continuously in the affairs of men. Luke 16:8 (CSB)  “For the children of this age are more shrewd than the children of light in dealing with their own people.”

They know the way of sacrifice. Ask Politicians who are vying for elective office. Ask occultic pastors who bury live cows for increase in  church membership, university lecturers who carry sacrifice naked in the middle of the night, the various 12am or 3am blood bath for those seeking a higher office in government, etc. Unfortunately, an average Christain does not want to go the extra length to fulfill his destiny via the pathway of sacrifice. They have forgotten that even God is bound by the way of spirits.

When God needed to redeem mankind, what did He do? Confessed redemption? Wished redemption? Hired a prayer contractor? No. He went the way of sacrifice. He sacrificed His only begotten son for the redemption of mankind. Wake up brethren, nothing great comes on a platter of gold. You must sacrifice something precious if your destiny will ever be colourful. Your destiny will not manifest without raising an altar of deep sacrifice.

There are commanded sacrifices that God will demand of you if you must secure His divine interference in your space like He demanded of Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, and afterwards, the promise He made to Abraham became a sworn covenant. However, via understanding, you can stir yourself unto righteousness and bring yourself under an oath, and God, who is faithful and just will be compelled to enter your space. Isaiah 64:7 (NKJV), “And there is no one who calls on Your name, Who stirs himself up to take hold of You; For You have hidden Your face from us, And have consumed us because of our iniquities.”

Quote: Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals – Martin Luther King Jr.

Prophetic Decree: Receive grace to live as a sacrifice, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus 

1. Thank you Father for your ways are glorious.
