I never made a sacrifice

"David Livingstone, a missionary to Africa during the 1800s, once said during a speech to students at Cambridge University, "People talk of the sacrifice I have made in spending so much time of my life in Africa...I never made a sacrifice. We ought not to talk of 'sacrifice' when we remember the great sacrifice which He made who left His Father's throne on high to give Himself for us."

"...we have a great High Priest who passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God,..." Hebrews 4:14

  • Have you ever said, or believed that you were making a great sacrifice to serve God?  
  • How does Livingstone's perspective of God's sacrifice of His Son, change your perspective of what sacrifice means to you?
