What can I do to make the sacrifice of my God worthwhile? I am not talking about earning my salvation, but when I think about the life that has been given to me by God, sacrificed for by God, and renewed by God – a threefold gift of life, there is a part of me which wants this threefold gift to be well used. How can I be a person that Jesus would look at and say “You took everything I gave you and became the person I wanted you to be. When I look at you, the pain of the Cross was worth it.” Wouldn’t you like to be one Jesus could say that to?
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
– John 3:16
