Bible verses about Sacrifices

Psalm 27:6I will sacrifice with shouts of joy.” – praise God in our trials.

Psalm 51:17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart.” – acknowledge we are sinners, repent and be grateful for God’s mercy.

Romans 12:1Be living sacrifices.” – give God all of us!

Ephesians 5:2 – “Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” - live like Christ.

Phil. 4:18 – “I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.” - use our money to help God’s workers.

Hebrews 13:15-17 – “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.” - Praise God and respect people placed in authority.

1 Peter 2:5 – “You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” - Be part of the church.

Sun shining through the rain makes the rainbow. Spiritually, when a Christian consciously sees the smile and love of God in the midst of present trouble, then the true glory and beauty of that Christian’s life is revealed to the world. Trust His promises. Don’t waste a suffering!
