What will I Sacrifice?

Offering myself as a living sacrifice is my natural response to all that God has done for me in Christ Jesus! (Romans 12:1)

100+ years ago, Sgt. William Carney modeled sacrifice. A freed slave, Carney wanted to pursue a career in the church. But when the Civil War broke out, he decided the best place to serve God was in the military to help free the oppressed.

July 18, 1863 Carney's unit came under fire at Fort Wagner, S.C. Their color guard was shot and Carney grabbed the flag before it fell. Shot several times himself, and nearly dying from blood loss, Carney kept the flag in front of his unit. For his bravery, Carney was awarded the Medal of Honor.

• I humbly honor and bless Jesus for His sacrifice on the cross to save me
• I humbly honor those who have sacrificed their lives to preserve my liberties
• I humbly offer MYSELF as a LIVING SACRIFICE for God's work and glory:

I will sacrifice watching a Netflix show to sit on a porch with a neighbor
I will sacrifice my pride to get to know someone different from me
I will sacrifice plans, energy, money to bring the Gospel to a pre-saved person
I will sacrifice a comfort zone to serve a neighbor's needs
I will sacrifice some time each month to commit to a Connection Group

"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13 ESV
