Love is Marked by Sacrifice

What soldier goes to war at their own expense? The fact that a man voluntarily immerses himself for years in training, in denial of pleasures, in toils and troubles in service to his countrymen, means that living for his own interests alone is not satisfactory to him. Living to defend and ward off enemy predators to his countrymen is EVIDENCE of a man as a living sacrifice to His God and His countrymen. 

The marks of genuine faith are recognized by a love that sacrifices. Love is no longer understood as making sacrifices, yet the very definition of worship is becoming a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1). The early century believers in Christ were marked by their sacrificial love for one another. 

The birth of America was demonstrated by fathers who "...mutually pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor".

In that spirit of America's Founding Fathers, this self-governed father is leading his Household government to respond to the Spirit's call. We've been summoned out of Babylon [1] to rely wholly on Him for us to do the impossible—govern ourselves without permission from others. That is the Spirit of true leadership.

The evidence is available: America was birthed by a love marked by sacrifice—the highest expression of what is a father. 

Watch Paul Harvey: Our Lives, Our Fortunes, Our Sacred Honor

Then consider how you might lovingly support the work of resurrecting family government with your Time, your Talent, or your Treasure
