Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Fellowship With God”
Text: Leviticus 3:1
“When his offering is a sacrifice of a peace offering, if he offers it of the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before the LORD.”
“Fellowship With God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The peace offering followed the burnt offering, that made peace between God and Man. This shows us that the peace offering was not to Make Peace with God - it was to Enjoy Fellowship With God. This offering was shared between the altar, the priest, and the owner of the animal.
What a wonderful picture this is of God’s design for relationship with mankind:
Once Peace is Made between
God and Man; Peace and Fellowship is Enjoyed With God!
For the Warrior, you and I have been justified by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross:
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Rom.5:1-2)
Our Commander Jesus Christ was the “burnt offering” that ‘made peace’ with God as our Peace Maker:
“For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,
having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,
and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.” (Eph.2:14-16).
Now, you and I can enjoy Peace and Fellowship With God; because of His Offering of Himself, once and for all, male or female, Jew or Gentile, free or slave,
“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Gal.3:26-28).
Listen up Warrior! You and I can enjoy Continual Peace and Fellowship With God through all the good, the bad, and the ugly stuff of life - because Our Commander Jesus Christ Is Our Peace Maker!
We enjoy Peace and Fellowship With God when We Rest In Our Peace Maker and His Word:
“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.” (Heb.4:9-10).
Enjoy Your Peace and Fellowship With God my fellow Warrior! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
