Lord, you are my shepherd that I will not want (Psalm 23:1). How can I want anything when you supply my every need (Philippians 4:19)? Am I not rich in Jesus to be rich in good works (1 Timothy 6:18)? So what is there in life to give other than my life to give. In other words, is not my life the only thing I can sacrifice to you, Lord? How can I not offer my body, mind, and strength as a living sacrifice, which is holy and acceptable to you (Romans 12:1)?
Lord, you* are greater than all things. Did you not create all things? Is not everything made by you (John 1:3)? The water, air, earth, animals, plants, people, and universe are your creation. What is not subject to you, Lord? The rocks on the ground are even subject to your rule. In fact, if you allowed them to, they would praise your name (Luke 19:40). What would these rocks say other than what is true? Would they say, “Please save us now in the highest degree! Save us eternally!” And it is for this reason you came to the world. You came to save us by meeting your hour of gruesome death (John 12:27). But this death could not keep you in the tomb.
