In everything in life, or for any one to attain a hight or get things Spiritually, there must be a physical sacrifice, now or before.
You must be aware of this, Salvation is free, but to metain it is costly, you must be ready to pay the price if you want to enjoy God. And prices are deference, big or small, but be ready at all time, what can you give God. In the Bible book of Philippians charpter number (3:6-11). Which says, Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning righteousness which is in the law blameless. But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also coout all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ. And be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being confirmed to his death. If by any means I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Not that I have already attained or am already perfected but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold for me. But I press towards the PRIZE of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Every great man you today, has in one way or the other paid a prize for that position you see him occupied, that you are envious of, both day and night, both sun and rain, what is it they have not pass through to attain that hight, persecution, tribulation, Peri, hunger, triers, shiprech, what can separate us from the love of God. Nothing The Bible recorded that Jabez was more honorable amongs his brethren, but nothing to show for it, but he paid the price of radical prayer, and the Bible says, God answered him.
How can you as a child of God, compared yourself, who is sleeping eating and drinking, to a man, who is always at the mountain praying, do you expect the same result, no way, the word of God says, draw near to me, and I will draw near to you. When you look at the Bible carefully, in the book of James charpter number (1:25). The Bible says that, Whosoever looketh into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and not be a forgetful hearer but a doer work, this man will be blessed in what he does. See, crossing the red Sea, is not enough, you need to get to your Cannan land, that means being a Christian is not enough, you must work out your salvation with fear and trembling, obeying God.
There is pain in paying the price, but the joy that will come thereafter cannot be completed, that is why, when you look at the Bible book of Romans chapter number (8:18). And it says, For I consider that the suffering of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waiting for the revealing of the sons of God, For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it in hope. Not until you are led by the Spirit of God, you are not a child of God. So to be led by the Spirit you must pay the price. Many children of God today don't want to take any pain, but they want the miracles over night, making them to put their hands into evil, all in the name of manifesting poers, "Not so" there is a genuine way to do it. Even our Lord Jesus Christ, before he started manifesting, He undergo 40 days and 40 night of fasting and praying.. The Bible says that after it, He was hungry, that is why the devil came to tempt Him, and he over come. Glory be to God.
Sacrificial giving, started from God Himself, in the Bible book of John chapter number (3:16). And it says that, For God so love the world, that He gave his only begotten son, that Whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. And in Bible book of Genesis, the scripture says that, Abraham leave his father's house and even his country to the unknown land, which God promise to give him, first he paid the sacrifice of giving up all his inheritance and possessions in his father's house, it is then, God started blessing him. Don't you know that charity begins at home? That is why he did not hesitate to sacrifice his only son ISAAC when God ask him to do so, and by doing that, God said to him that, Now I know that you love Me, and God bless him, north, south, east and west, and make him His friend and father of all nations.
What are you doing for God, even as child of God, what are you sacrificing, that is so painful to you, and you count it all lost for the sake of the kingdom of God, you who call yourself children of Abraham, that you will not count as anything, that even if you don't have the reward now, your children will have the overflow of that singular act, after all, Abraham was given the promise of the land of Canna, but even untill after ISAAC before the manifestation, so pay that painful price today and stand the chance of the benefits. Look for something to do for God.
Now when you look at the Bible book of 2 Samuel chapter number (24:20-24). And it says that. Now Araunah looked and saw the King and his servants coming towards him, So Araunah went out and bow before the King with his face to the ground. And Araunah said, why is my Lord the King come to his servant ? And David said to buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the Lord, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people. Now Araunah said to David let my Lord the King take and offer whatever seems good to him. Look here are open for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implement and the yoke of the oxen for wood. All these O king Araunah has given to the king" And Araunah said to the king may the Lord your God accept you." Ten the king said to Araunah "NO" but I will surely buy it from you for a PRICE. Nor will I offer burnt offering to the Lord my God with that which cost me nothing. So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
How many of us will see that opportunity of free gift for sacrifice, and still think of painful sacrifice, even today the gift God gave to us to manifest his glory, some of us are selling it for money, without using it for the popose why give it to us. There is a price for every prize. Thank you very much for reading this my aticle, remember to serve God without counting the lost, God is not an armed rubber, but the Bible says, He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
