Chatroom – Our Sacrificial Savior

I’m so sorry about the difficulties logging on tonight, I hope everyone is still trying!

Tonight, I want to wrap up our chat by discussing sacrifice. What has impacted you the most about the character of God from this study, and what sacrifices are you willing to make in order to imitate His character?

  1. The thing that impacted me the most was that Jesus still did what His father wanted even though he knew what was going to happen if he did.I guess, if it ever had to happen, I would be willing to sop being friends with somebody to keep myself from sinning along with them.

    1. Me too, Alyssa! It’s interesting how we sometimes think that Jesus was plan B. The sacrifice of Christ means even more when we realize that He was planning to make that sacrifice from all of eternity.

      Breaking relationship can be the most difficult thing to do, but it can also be necessary. I’m glad you would be willing to make that sacrifice <3

        1. Great verses! I also thought of Proverbs 1:10-19.

          “My child, if sinners entice you, do not consent. If they say, “Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood; let us wantonly ambush the innocent; like Sheol let us swallow them alive and whole, like those who go down to the Pit. We shall find all kinds of costly things; we shall fill our houses with booty. Throw in your lot among us;
          we will all have one purse”—my child, do not walk in their way, keep your foot from their paths; for their feet run to evil, and they hurry to shed blood. For in vain is the net baited while the bird is looking on; yet they lie in wait—to kill themselves! and set an ambush—for their own lives! Such is the end of all who are greedy for gain; it takes away the life of its possessors.”

  2. Jesus came to earth from a perfect home to be a lowly human being, He wet through all the human troubles we have and more, He labored all day to try and preach His words without a home to go to every night, He was doubted, falsely accused, mocked, flogged, clothed in purple (which was later ripped of reopening His beating wounds), and a crown of thorns shoved into his skull, had to carry HIs own cross to Golgatha theough His agony, was nailed onto a cross, took on all of our sin, and died all for us! If He can do that for us the least we can do is do what He asks of us which we are rewarded for! So we MUST be willing to LIVE for him after He has DIED for us!

    1. Beautifully said Isabella! He went through such emotional and physical agony for us, giving our lives for Him is small in comparison–and something for which we will be rewarded. Romans 6 is one of my favorite chapters on this. It specifies baptism as the beginning point at which we begin to live for Him, and then discusses our continuing sacrifice.

  3. Ok girls! So since it’s a holiday weekend (and since I was traveling today and forgot the time change), I would like to end our chat next week instead of this week. I’ve so enjoyed spending this time with each and every one of you, and I’d hate to miss out on talking with so many of our friends because of my mistake. If you are able to join us next week please jump back on…thank you for your input tonight, and I hope you have a great holiday week!
