Not to preserve, but sacrifice

Why do so many shrink back from true commitment to God? Ed M. gives the reason in his devotional today:

Jesus enlists men and women into His service not to preserve them but to sacrifice them, II Corinthians 12:15a; Philippians 2:17; I Thessalonians 2:8,9; II Timothy 4:6.

Focus question: Have I handed over my life to God for service in the gospel? How does the impulse to preserve self demonstrate itself?
