How is this sacrifice offered? One way is through hospitality. Show kindness and care to others, especially those with whom you are not familiar. Another is by visiting others, both in nice places and not so nice places. Care for the afflicted is an additional way to share your life. There are plenty of ways to do good for others and to share your life with them, but you have to do it. You can’t just talk about it (see 1 John 3:18). The sacrifice of a shared life should be a joy, not a burden. The Apostle Paul reminds us in Titus 2:14 that our Lord “gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous unto good works.” God is pleased with our doing good and our sharing because it demonstrates the success and power of the sufferings of His Son. Move forward with and for Christ by serving others as He did (Mark 10:45). Such a sacrifice is a bright testimony to the worth of God and the truthfulness of His promises.
