Two Quotes on the Sacrificial Life

Going along with my post for yesterday, I found these quotes about sacrificial living.  Will you be ready to give completely when the opportunity to sacrifice for Christ arises?  This is something we all need to ponder.

“We too, in our own way, have often an impression that we are keeping all the commandments sufficiently and inheriting the eternal life.  One day a tremendous duty opens before us, and we are aghast at its hardness.  What shall we do?  What shall we answer?  Is Christ deserving of everything from us, or only of part?  It is a tremendous test which all cannot stand.

Anthony W. Thorold


“A great necessity is a great opportunity.  Nothing is really lost by a life of sacrifice;  everything is lost by failure to obey God’s call.  The opportunities of generously serving Jesus Christ are few;  perhaps not more than one in a lifetime.  They come, they do not return.  What we do upon a great occasion will probably depend upon what we already are;  what we are will be the result of previous years of self-discipline under the grace of Christ, or of the absence of it.”
