Living Sacrifice

This poem was written for Journey Christian Church volunteer appreciation month. christian volunteers hear Gods' call and answer using the gifts, talents, and love the God gave them. Christian work in God breathed, God inspired, and God fueled! Christians simply offer their bodies as a living sacrifice in thanksgiving for what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross.


Living Sacrifice

You surrender your heart
As His dwelling place
He calls you by name and
You answer, "Yes, Lord."
You incline your ear
Listen and hear His voice
As a trusted servant
You answer, "Yes, Lord."
You open your eyes
No longer blinded to those He loves
Awakened to His work among them and
You answer, "Yes, Lord."
You reach out your hands
Not afraid to touch, work, and give
Never weary of doing good
You answer, "Yes, Lord."
You hurry your feet
Following in His steps
To bring Good News and
You answer, Yes, Lord."
Your life: a living sacrifice,
A gift of service
For His pleasure,
Your answer, "Yes, Lord."
