Samuel 15:22 ‘Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.’
Churches today do not practice burnt offerings, but that does not mean that sacrifice has ended. Sacrificing time given to self, food, indulgences or other. Our LORD rather than has obedience to him being first and then sacrifice can flow as a consequence of obedience. Sacrifice on its own can be thought of as a negotiation with God. God is not a negotiator, he is the God of love. Submission in obedience to his will is the call to you. Understanding how you can affect this world and not how you are affected by this world. John 14:15 "If you love me, keep my commands.’’ What is God commanding you to do? Starting with getting small victories for God and growing into the mighty ones. Bless you.
