By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks.
The biggest lesson you and I can learn from the sacrifice of Abel is that he brought his best before the Lord… and he did so by faith.
Good works alone will never be the answer… nor will religion. But faith… acting on our trust in what God says is true… is the key.
Christian, the Lord deserves your very best. Are you giving everything over to Him… in your personal life, marriage, family, friendships? Are you offering it all up to Him by faith?
Romans 12:1 says, “Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”
Lay your life on the altar as a sacrifice before God… by faith… so that you can be used by Him. Your faith will demonstrate to others the way to Jesus, the worship of Jesus, and the witness of His grace and power in your life!
YOU BRING GLORY TO GOD WHEN YOU OFFER YOUR LIFE TO HIM IN OBEDIENCE AND FAITH.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
