Our Offering

Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.Deuteronomy 11:16 (NIV)



I pray you have been reading along with me, the Book of Malachi.  I can't help but see the broken heart of our God as  the sacrifices that were being offered lacked fear and reverence. To bring a blind animal, an animal with defect, when the Lord specifically gave instructions on what kind of sacrifice was acceptable to Him. That's like our children going out to the garbage and picking something up we discarded and wrapping it up and saying...here mom...here dad...I want to express my love to you and thank you for being so good to me...


So today, when we enter the courts of the Lord, what do we bring....I'll make no suggestions because we have all been guilty of bringing something "less than" to the Lord.  Father forgive us as you have made it clear what is pleasing to you.  You have been our Provision...and from the very bounty that you have given us, we will bring a sacrifice, a gift acceptable to you. Father receive our lives a fresh....our lives as a offering to you as well, may it be acceptable in your sight, our reasonable act of worship.


Let us come into His House with joy and a spirit of celebration as we come to worship our
King!

God bless you!~Liz
