A meaningless gift

"You take no delight in sacrifice or offerings. Now that you have made me listen ,I finally understand......." Psalm 40:6

"For when I tried to keep the law, I realized I could never earn God's approval. So I died to the law so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ. I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. So I live my life in this earthly body by TRUSTING IN THE SON OF GOD, who loved me and gave himself FOR ME. I am not one who treats the grace of God as meaningless.For if we could be saved by keeping the law then there was no need for Christ to die." Galatians 2:19-21

My "gift of sacrifice" makes Your incredible gift of sacrifice meanigless. This whole journey isn't about sacrifice or to bring me to a place of sacrifice....it's about love. Love is where I'm headed....rooted, grounded, and straight to your heart of love Oh Father! All true sacrifice and surrender are birthed BY YOUR SPIRIT and come through the wooing of your Spirit. You wooed me to a deeper intimacy, until I wanted you MORE than the pleasures of this earth. You woo me still until I will desire you more than earthly praise. You will continue to woo me until I desire YOU more than the comforts of this earth. Wooing me, romancing me until I am consumed with you and enraptured by your love! What a joy this journey!
