The New Testament Sacrifices

2 Mar

The New Testament Sacrifices…

The Old Testament is filled with sacrifices, guilt offerings, sin offerings, trespass offerings, peace offerings, and thanksgiving offerings…so many offerings in the temple. We are glad that the sacrifices are over, right? No more temple, no more sacrifice. Wrong!

The New Covenant requires higher standards and deeper sacrifices to God. You are called to bless God with your gifts and offerings of thanksgiving, praise, love, obedience, and your life…sacrificial gifts.

In the Old Testament, they gave up things that cost them, meant something to them, something they did not want to give up. That’s precious to God. Romans says that your life, your body, is a living sacrifice.

Bless God today and give Him an offering, a gift, a sacrifice because your very salvation came to you through the sacrifice of Messiah. That’s God’s gift to you. Every joy, every good thing is in His sacrifice to you.

My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. Psalm 51:17

How can you repay? You can’t, but you can bless the Lord, and that is the only proper thing to do, with a greater covenant, a greater salvation, a greater sacrifice. Bless God with your sacrifice today because God has blessed your life with His.

Plan today to offer sacrifices for God – then, in faith and joy, offer them to God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
