   Discussion: Sacrifice
Pastor (anon) · 8 years, 10 months ago

Brothers and sisters we are growing spiritually by the grace of God, but it seem to me we are missing one vital element, and that is the desire to sacrifice one for the other.  We have all gotten caught up with day to day living that  we have nelected to function as one body. We need to be willing to be poured out for each member of the body. Paul suggested this attitude to the brothers and sister in the phillipian church; Philippians 2:17-18 And if my lifeblood is, so to speak, to be poured out over your faith, which I am offering up to God as a sacrifice-that is, if I am to die for you-even then I will be glad and will share my joy with each of you. 18 For you should be happy about this, too, and rejoice with me for having this privilege of dying for you.  TLB

We need to get rid of this deep entrench feelings of loyalty to our own special group. We need to be willing to go above and beyond to maintain this body in good order.


2 Corinthians 8:5  And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.

Christians must present their "bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God" (Romans 12:1).  In the old system of sacrifices the animals were offered as dead; Christians are to offer their bodies, all their members with their powers, to God a "living sacrifice," i.e. a sacrifice which operates in lives of holiness and service

"But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased."  (Hebrews 13:16)

Romans 12:4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: KJV

Romans 12:9-10 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; KJV

1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. KJV

1 Corinthians 12:14-17 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? KJV

1 Corinthians 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. KJV

1 Corinthians 12:21-23 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. KJV

in practice it works this way — the "lower" the part, the more basic, and therefore necessary. You can live without an eye, for instance, but not without a stomach.  When it's a part of your own body you are concerned with, it makes no difference whether the part is visible or clothed, higher or lower. You give it dignity and honor just as it is, without comparisons.  If anything, you have more concern for the lower parts than the higher. If you had to choose, wouldn't you prefer good digestion to full-bodied hair?  The way God designed our bodies is a model for understanding our lives together as a church: every part dependent on every other part.

Brothers and sisters consider what you have read and if it is true consider doing what is best for every member as needed. If some oneis working for the benefit of the body, do everything in your power to support them.  I believe I have proven my case from the word of God.
