Your Faith is Proven by Your Sacrifice, very powerful sermon by Bishop T. D. Jakes. Jesus said take up your cross and follow me. As we all know cross can be a burden to bear. Cross that Jesus was nailed on was heavy, someone had to help him carry it at some point. Most of us don’t want to take up that cross still we want to follow Him.
The sacrifice you have to make is taking up that cross, some issues we encountered sometimes are the cross we have to carry but we have to carry the cross to the end in doing so establishing our faith.
Abraham still had to reach the mountain and put knife on Isaac neck for his faith to be proven. Imagine that trauma experience he had to went through, that was his cross. He obeyed to the end.
God does not forget sacrifice!
