Isn’t anything we do where we acknowledge God considered a sacrifice, be it prayer, thanking Him for a close parking spot or a beautiful flower? In acknowledging Him we are giving up our self even if for a moment. Does that make sense?

It does make sense even if in case in not fully on board. Specifically I worry about those professing to live a Christian life, yet have given up nothing. I hope that makes sense

Happy 4th of July to one and all!
I think you have a point. Repentance is turning away. We turn from sin to God. We give up sin. In a sense, because something in us wants to sin, giving up sin is a sacrifice. Serving God, however, is something we can do joyfully. We were enslaved to sin. We are free to serve God.
So let’s again consider the question.
Without sacrifice, is it really service?
That depends upon our attitude. Have we fully repented? Have we learned to serve joyfully? The answer is no and no. We are still learning, at least most of us.
Yet we should remember the sacrifice is not in service. What we sacrifice is sin.
All we have and all we are belongs to God. We are each stewards of what He has given us. Once we learn to be grateful for His gifts, it will be far easier to share.

Good question! I think godly service that pleases the Lord should at minimum hurts a little
