Which is the more important, the gift or the altar which makes the gift holy?
Matthew 23:19 (GNT)
Clean what is inside the cup first, and then the outside will be clean too!
Your life, if you are a follower of Jesus, is your gift of thanks to God. Jesus is the ‘altar’ which makes our gifts holy. However noble or good your life may be, it is not good or noble on its own merit. Christ alone makes your life a gift, makes it holy, by grace.
Live small. Say ‘yes’.
