Day 20 Offering Spiritual Sacrifices

You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5

The power of God only falls where there is sacrifice, and this proves that what was offered is real. To many believers, “the word sacrifice” has become a bad word. They do everything in their power to stay in what is comfortable and convenient. However, the fire of God doesn’t fall on those who only have faith, but on the ones who also make a sacrifice to the Lord. There is no such thing as sacrifice without inconvenience, without renouncing to something we want. 1 Peter 2:5 says that we are called, “…to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ”. So if we want God’s fire and passion, we must constantly offer sacrifices to Him, not sacrifices of animals or things, but rather spiritual sacrifices of commitment and service. I have never read a verse in the Bible where His fire fell over an empty altar, devoid of a sacrifice. That is why we must always seek new levels of surrender, offering, prayer, fasting and intercession. These are the spiritual sacrifices we are called to offer Him as priests of the new generation. God is ready to pour out His fire. What sacrifice will you put before the altar today?

You don’t need to be a pastor for God to manifest His supernatural power through you. The signs, according to what is written, will follow those who believe in God (Mark 16:17-18). However, if you are a pastor, God will use you with even greater power. Do you want the fire and the passion of God to come to you?

Let us pray

Lord Jesus, I believe You died on the cross, once and forever, and You were offered as a lamb for the sacrifice. I believe You arose from the dead on the third day, went to heaven, and are sitting at the right hand of the Father. For the power released on cross, I surrender to You, and I offer the sacrifice of praise, and the fruits of lips to confess in Your name. I give You my living and holy body; that sacrifice that pleases You most because that is the right way to worship You. I ask that You send the fire upon me and give me more passion for You! Thank you Lord, Amen.
