But the king replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.” 2 Samuel 24:24
Let me ask you a question. Who matters most in your life today? If your answer is not God, I pray that the Truth will enlighten you. But, if your answer is God, then I encourage you to live a life devoted to Him. Because a life lived in Jesus is a life well-lived. It is a life that will exceed our time here on earth, preeminent and eternal.
But, a life in Him needs to be intentional. Because once we decide to live for Jesus, we get distractions. The enemy will throw many hurdles and resistance. But that’s where our plan gets in. The plan is that Jesus will be our priority. And thus, He gets our best.
Because of who He is, we don’t give Him our leftovers. We don’t offer to God anything that costs us nothing. It will no longer be a sacrifice of praise if we do not pay the price.
But, the price is easy. It is not heavy, and the burden is light. It only needs our wholehearted love.
So, to live in Jesus is to love Jesus. Love Him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. He deserves to receive your heart for which He died. Shalom!
