There is victory found in surrender,
new life found in laying down self.
Contentment not in laying up treasures,
but in laying down self.
Joy is in the giving,
not gaining something.
It is joy found in sacrifice.
It's not always easily found,
but it is there.
Joy found in sacrifice.
The only platform in the upside down kingdom is an altar.
The only platform Jesus Christ stood on was a place to lay down and die. And we as His followers can stand only on that kind of platform - a place to come lay down as a sacrifice.
Joy can be found in sacrifice.
