Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Love Gives It’s Best”
Text: Leviticus 27:28
“Nevertheless no devoted offering that a man may devote to the LORD of all that he has, both man and beast, or the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted offering is most holy to the LORD.”
“Love Gives It’s Best,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The Law commanded that “no devoted offering, “devoted” to the LORD, could ever be “sold or redeemed;” because the devoted offering is most holy to the Lord.
Vows could be redeemed with 120% of the priests valuation of the vow; but “devoted offerings,” were permanent!
I was thinking of examples of this and was struck with the Greatest Devoted Offering Ever Given: God’s Only Begotten Son, the Divine, Perfect, Son of God, Jesus Christ....
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
Aaaaah Yes; Love Gives It’s Best! Oh that wonderful song is swelling up in my heart mow:
“On a hill far away
Stood an old rugged Cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross
Where the Dearest and Best
For a world of lost sinners was slain
So I’ll cherish that old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a Crown....”
Love Gave It’s Best for You and I; God the Father Gave His Son, and His Son Jesus Christ Gave Himself, for you and I to be Redeemed from the bondage of sin and made a son and daughter of God, a partaker of His divine nature!(2Pet.1:2-4).
Hannah gave her best, her promised son Samuel to the LORD, all the days of his life he “belonged to the LORD.” (1Samuel 1:11,27,28).
God the Father Gave His Best,
God the Son Gave His Best,
God the Holy Spirit Gives His Best -
Hannah Gave her Best , and
Samuel Gave his Best.......
Isn’t it Reasonable that you and I should Give Our Best, our Life as a Living Sacrifice “Devoted” holy and acceptable, unto God?
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”(Rom.12:1-2).
Yes! My Fellow Warrior; Love Gives It’s Best, and that’s why we Give our Best to our Commander and King Jesus Christ, At All Times! Oooh Rah!
