ACAD – Accepted: Hebrews 10

Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Sacrifice, Submission, Surrender

“So, I had to ask myself this week – why is submission such a dirty word to me?

I am okay with giving up material goods – sacrificing my last dollar, the clothes off my back or even sharing my home. Sacrifice? No big deal. Surrender? Well, I’ve learned to surrender my all to Jesus. I’ve learned to trust that God is in control of everything involving my life. So, surrender – I can do that. I am submitted to God – no doubt about that…. Being a yielded vessel for God sounds great, but being a yielded vessel for God’s people…well… that’s another story….

Imagine how amazing life would be if each of us could get over ourselves every day and serve our loved ones, our community and our neighbors selflessly. Imagine if we simply laid down our life to serve and to love. In such a world, no one would go hungry or thirsty for God’s grace and mercy.”
