LOVE MEASURED BY SACRIFICE

MINISTERING: DR. TOLA OLUKILEDE

Our test of faith is most times hinged on our obedience and the
sacrifice we can make to do what God commanded.Hosea 3:1-5

Love is stronger than death. Nothing can kill love, many waters cannot quench or drown love Song of Solomon 8:6-7. The faithful in God, nothing can separate them from the love of Christ according to Romans 8:35

No matter what you are or the spiritual height you may have attained, without you showing love by sacrifice you are nothing before God. I Corinthians 13


Like Solomon, God expect us to show our love by giving with much sacrifice I king 3:3. You become a saint when your covenant with God is by sacrifice.God always want His saint to gather unto Him. The covenant believers are the true believer.Psalm 50:5

The only two commandment to follow is to love God and to love our fellow human beings. If God can retained His Lordship over the earth by love and giving sacrificially, who are we to be exempted from doing what God did John 3:16. Without love and sacrifice, man will never attain nor retain anything while living.


There is what make love powerful, potent, real and eternal. It is SACRIFICE. Love is sacrifice and sacrifice is love. Love and sacrifice walks together. When you see sacrifice, check love must be around. Both are inseparable divine twins.


You only love the one you sacrificed for. Love is incomplete without sacrifice.Without sacrifice there is no love and love without sacrifice is fake. What sacrifice did you make for your wife, husband, son, daughter etc

Without love there is no Christianity. Love without sacrifice is no
love but mere wishes.

Sacrifice is never and will never be convenient. What sacrifice are you making for your future, marriage, and yourself?


The workshop on financial intelligence after this conference is all about how you can make a sacrifice for your future today, so that you will not regrets tomorrow. If you cannot make sacrifice for yourself, you cannot be said that you love yourself.

ALSO READ; Sold out to God

Many people who thought they love themselves actually hate themselves John 12:25. A life you cannot sacrifice for or deny for can never be fruitful. It is not good to love your life too much, because it will end up in regrets tomorrow. Love with sacrifice is the greatest. Not faith, not hope in God. I Corinthians 13.
