It’s impossible to make a sacrifice for God!

       The greatest manifestation of our love for God & others is not the mere giving of our material things & personal possessions, but the sharing of OURSELVES & our personal SERVICES for others!

    When you first begin to give of yourself, it may temporarily look like you’re losing something or sacrificing a little bit, but in the long run you’re going to find out you’re not going to really be sacrificing at all! You’re just going to be INVESTING, & the returns are going to be far beyond anything you have invested & far surpass any sacrifice you could possibly have made!–Like Dr. David Livingstone, the wealthy British missionary who pioneered the jungles of Africa & died there, said, “I never made a sacrifice!” He gave EVERYTHING, but knew that what he was getting in return was worth much more than everything he could possibly give! Although he gave his life, he reaped eternal life & dividends in immortal souls, thousands saved forever!

          So invest your life & your all in the Rock, Christ Jesus, & in God’s Work!–And you’ll have eternal dividends from investment in His Work that you will never lose, but reap forever! God will bless you for it!

你不可能为上帝作出牺牲!

我们爱上帝及他人最大表现,并不只是献出物质上的东西及个人的财物,而是与他人分享我们自己及我们的个人服事!

当你开始献出自己时,或许暂时看来像是丧失了一些东西、或牺牲了一点点,但是到头来,你将发现你不会真正作出什么牺牲的!你只是在投资,而回报将会比你投资的任何事物多出很多,并远超过你所可能作的任何牺牲!就如那位开拓了非洲丛林、并死在那里的英国富有传教士大卫·列文斯顿博士说的∶“我从没有作过任何牺牲!”他献出了一切,但是他知道他得到的回报更有价值,超过他所可能献出的每一件事物!虽然他献出了他的生命,但是他获得了永生,及许多不朽的灵魂——数以千计的人因他而永远得救,这就是他的利息!

因此将你的生命及你的一切,投资在“磐石”基督耶稣及上帝的工作上吧!投资在他工作中,你将不会亏本,只会获得汇报,获得永恒的利息!上帝将因此而祝福你!
