Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalms 5:3(TPT); At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart.
Every Christian sacrifice must be a sacrifice on the altar of God. This may be the sacrifice of praise, the sacrifice of service, the sacrifice of giving, or even the sacrifice of submission.
As an usher diligently welcoming people into the presence of God, is your sacrifice on the altar? As a passionate member of your local church who gives continuously to the cause of the gospel, is your giving on the altar? As a spiritual son or daughter in a ministry, is your submission on the altar?
If your sacrifice of praise is on the altar, your lips ring with thanksgiving even when nothing around you gives you a reason to be thankful.
If your sacrifice of service is on the altar, you embrace responsibility with zeal and passion no matter how small your duty because you know what a privilege it is to serve the Most High God.
If your sacrifice of submission is on the altar, you respect and honour your spiritual authorities, not out of obligation but because you understand the anointing.
With your life on the altar, everything you do for God ceases to be a mere duty, it becomes an act of worship.
Let your giving be in reverent awe of God. Let your submission be in worship to Him. Let your service be from a heart firstly given to Him before it is given to any man you serve.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for Your Word. I receive it as wisdom that matures me. This day, I lay the pieces of my life on Your altar. Everything that I do is in worship to You. Receive my sacrifice of praise; receive my sacrifice of service; receive my sacrifice of giving. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
