Christ, Our Sacrifice

Reading: Leviticus 1-3


Now that we are in the book of Leviticus, you will find that many of the passages deal with all kinds of offerings-offerings of the herd, offerings of the flock, peace offerings, meat offerings, sin offerings, trespass offerings, and the list goes on and on. The passages describe in detail the type of sacrifice and how it was to be offered, and almost every passage contained the words, ‘and the priest.’ Aren’t you so glad that because of Christ, we no longer have to go before a priest to present our offerings or confess our sins?  


Just for today, I will appreciate the ability to speak to the Father through the Holy Spirit, by the Sacrifice of a Living Savior. I will rest in the fact that my family does not have to seek out or raise an animal to lay at the altar of sacrifice. Christ became-and forever is-our sacrifice. God the Father loved us so much that He willingly sent Jesus to be the propitiation for our sins, and He did that once and for all.

Just for today, I will offer myself willingly to the Lord. I will present myself ungrudgingly, and I will be ‘stirred up’ for God.

Patience

Reading: Exodus 29-32


Just for today, I will be patient. Sometimes we can’t see what God is doing, and we may feel that He isn’t working in our circumstance; but He is always working. I will not let impatience fuel my actions.


I have a favorite devotional book from which I love to read, and again, I have found a passage from Streams in the Desert that really reiterates today’s thought:

“I do not believe that we have begun to understand the marvelous power there is in stillness. We are in such a hurry-we must be doing-so that we are in danger of not giving God a chance to work. You may depend upon it; God never says to us, “Stand still,” or “Sit still,” or “Be still,” unless He is going to do something.”


What a comfort to know!

Put Others Before Self

Reading: 1 Kings 1:29-40


David was still the King at this Point. But things were bad and needed to fixed. In spite of the throne, mule, kingdom still being his…David placed Solomon in those places. For example: V.33 “…mine own mule…”, V.34 “…God save king Solomon…”, V.35 “…sit upon my throne…”. As King, David could have solved the problem without turning it all over to Solomon. But David preferred others before self. He not only thought for his good and the good of the whole, but he also worked toward the individual good (Solomon, Bathsheba, etc.). Put others before self. Even when they can do nothing for you in return. Romans 12:10 states, “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;” Also, 1 Peter 5:5, “Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.”

God's "No"

Reading: Exodus 25-28


For any of you parents out there reading this, I think you will find today’s thought quite relevant. Have you ever had to tell your child no? No is not always an easy word to hear, and it isn’t always an easy one to say, either. As a parent, sometimes our children ask us for things that we know they don’t necessarily need, or it may be something that can’t be given at that particular time. I don’t think we tell them no in malice or anger, but rather, we tell them because we know there is a greater good, purpose, or reason. So it is with God. When God has to say no, it isn’t because he doesn’t like us or doesn’t want to give us what we ask. It is because He knows better than we do what we need.  Just for today, I will be thankful for the times God says no. I will realize that He cares for me and that when He says no, it is for His greater purpose.
