The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.
You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
God wants us to be stripped of all pretension and laid bare before him. He wants dedicated servants who will pick up their own crosses and make a difference in this world. He wants warriors willing to battle. Not for our own benefit, but to glorify Him.
“All God’s plans have the mark of the cross on them and all His plans have death to self in them.” – E.M. Bounds (USA, 1835-1913)
