Lets look at an example of the routine of someone's week. Sunday is church service, Monday prayer meeting , Tuesday an outreach , Wednesday committee meeting etc. the list can go on. However, in the midst of all this activity, what is the Lord saying to your heart?
Revelation 2: 2 - 4
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Sacrifice is a step beyond convenience. Bill Johnson
