    Christian Devotional – July 8, 2015

    Read 1 Samuel chapter 2 VERSE: 1 Samuel 2:17–This sin of the young men was very great in the Lord’s sight, for they were treating the Lord’s offering with contempt. TRUTH: The Bible is very clear that what we offer the Lord in sacrifice is to be our very best. These men were taking that lightly and were choosing the best portions for themselves. How do we approach the things that we give God? In Romans, God indicates that as believers in Christ, we are to offer ourselves as living sacrifices to God. We must treat ourselves as the Lord would have us treat the very best. We often treat…

    Christian Devotional – April 10, 2014

    Read Deuteronomy chapter 26 VERSE: Deuteronomy 26:11–Then you and the Levites and the foreigners residing among you shall rejoice in all the good things the Lord your God has given to you and your household. TRUTH: The people were to bring a praise offering to God. As God blessed them and their work, they brought back to God an offering. That offering was a time of rejoicing. Do we give back to God a portion of what He has blessed us with? Is that giving a time of rejoicing? Do we give Him glory for all that He has done? RESPONSE: Father, I will give back to You and rejoice…

    VERSE: Numbers 8:11–Aaron is to present the Levites before the Lord as a wave offering from the Israelites, so that they may be ready to do the work of the Lord. TRUTH: The Levites were to work and serve the Lord and they were set apart to do that work. The people themselves were an offering to the Lord. We are to be an offering to the Lord as well. As we offer our life to Him, then we are made ready to do the work that God has for us to do. RESPONSE: Father, I pray that You will take my life as an offering to You. I will…

    VERSE: Nehemiah 10:35–We also assume responsibility for bringing to the house of the Lord each year the firstfruits of our crops and of every fruit tree. TRUTH: As the people dedicated themselves to the Lord, they recommitted themselves to the various commands that God had given them. In this case, the people were also agreeing to bring of their possessions a tithe to God. They knew that God owned everything and as such they were responsible to return a portion of it back to Him. Do we treat our things as if God owns them or as if we own them? Do we return the first of our earnings back…

    Christian Devotional – October 10, 2013

    VERSE: Exodus 30:10–“Once a year, Aaron shall make atonement on its horns. This atonement must be made with the blood of the atoning sin offering for the generations to come. It is most holy to the Lord.” TRUTH: Because the people are sinful and continue to do things that are wrong, God tells them that there must be an atonement each year. Something must stand in the place of the people to take the punishment that the people deserve for their sins. A price must be paid for their sins. This offering is holy to God. However, that sacrifice was not perfect, so had to me made year after year.…

    Christian Devotional – May 30, 2013

    VERSE: Ezekiel 46:11–At the feasts and the appointed festivals, the grain offering is to be an ephah with a bull, an ephah with a ram, and with a lamb as much as he pleases, along with a hin of oil for each ephah. TRUTH: So many of the offerings that are described in the Old Testament are very set and rigid in what is to be given and how much. However, here the people are told that with the lambs, they can give as much as they please. If God told us that we could give Him as much as we please, how much would that be? How much are…

    VERSE: 2 Chronicles 24:10–All the officials and all the people brought their contributions gladly, dropping them into the chest until it was full. TRUTH: When was the last time you remember giving an offering and being cheerful and excited about the opportunity to give? Giving our money is just as important as giving ourselves. We are to be willing to give cheerfully of anything and everything that God asks of us. RESPONSE: Father, You are worthy of any offering that I can give. I will gladly give to You anything and everything I have. Please follow and like us:
