All For Jesus

It is true that we have nothing to give to God to make Him favor us. He favored us, loving us while we were yet sinners, and therefore, we respond to that love with love. We reflect back to Him the love and the glory that He has showered on us.
         We cannot earn His favor but we can lay down our lives in gratitude of His favor. He has purchased us with the price of His own dear Son. If we believe this to be true, then we must lay down our lives and take up the life of Christ. This is what it means to present your bodies to the Lord as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God. This is your reasonable service to Him, to live every day and in every way to honor Jesus.

         If we hold back part of our lives from Jesus, then we must repent of this sin and ask God to help us lay ourselves down as we take up our cross with Christ.
