*Grace Nuggets: Simple reminders of God’s great love for you.

Reflect the character of Christ in all you say, do or think!


The Israelites were well aware of what a sacrifice was. It was a dead animal! For example, they would take a lamb and slaughter it. Then they would lay it on the fire and roast it before God. It was dead! Other than the food value, dead animals are worthless. God calls us to be a living sacrifice. That means, that like the lamb, we are sacrificed before him.The obvious difference, is we are not dead. The bad news to that? Living sacrifices have a tendency to crawl off the altar when the heat gets to be too much. We are called to be sacrifices to give our lives to God and to be dead to the heat of the worlds temptations.

Daily give your allegiance to Christ. Don’t be a crawling sacrifice!


It’s easier to blame others than to accept responsibility for our actions; to dwell on the mistakes made in the past than to build towards the future. Some look on the social, political and physical problems of today and blame God or others. Yet the evil of today isn’t because of divine action but due to the natural consequences of greed, lust, hatred and anger. Fire can’t be fought with fire. More darkness won’t defeat darkness. The smallest amount of light will penetrate the deepest darkness
