Good Morning Marine!
Word for the Day:
“Building The Sanctuary of God”
Text: Exodus 35:21
“Then everyone came whose heart was stirred, and everyone whose spirit was willing, and they brought the LORD’s offering for the work of the tabernacle of meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments.”
“Building The Sanctuary of God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God Commands Israel to Rest on the Sabbath BEFORE He Commands them to Build Him a Sanctuary.
There’s a lot of work to do, but in “our working” there needs to be “our resting “ in His Sabbath.
His Work requires our offering that’s presented with “a stirred heart” and “a willing heart.”
This is not an emotional response to give, we go home and consider “What we will give, How Much we will give, and When we will give; as The Lord’s Offering.”
“As We Purpose In Our Heart,” that’s how we give:
“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”(2Corin.9:7)
No one is left out from God’s Command to bring the Lord’s Offering; everyone whose “heart was stirred and willing” came and presented The Lord’s Offering, to Build His Sanctuary.
We all have a life to give; a “plan of good works to walk in.” Rich or poor, one talent or many talents, (1Pet.4:9); we all have one life to present to God as a “living sacrifice to Him.”
“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.” (Rom.12:1).
Considering what Jesus has given for you and I, a reasonable sacrificial gift for The Lord’s Offering would be our Life!
It’s been said that:
“Only one life will soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.”
We are each a living stone being built up into a spiritual house:
“you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.(1Pet.2:5).
The Righteous Warrior brings their Life to their Commander every morning as Tye Lord’s Offering. We bring our Life with a heart stirred by His Love and a willing heart surrendered in Love and Obedience.
And God uses this offering to Build The Sanctuary of God! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
