Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Our Dedication Offering"
Text: Num. 7:3
"And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered carts and twelve oxen, a cart for every two of the leaders, and for each one an ox; and they presented them before the tabernacle."
"Our Dedication Offering" is on the menu for Breakfast this morning. Our Word for the Day shows how each leader presented the exact same offering - on a set day - and in the order of their numbering as the armies of Israel in Num. 2.
This Presentation of the Dedication Offering by the Leaders of each tribe reminded me of the Dedication Offering each Warrior Presents to their Commander each and every day - their Life! "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). It's the same exact offering for each Warrior. It's done every day. It's done in order regularly as we sit with our Commander for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
The Dedication Offering began first with the Leaders themself and then as representative of the house they lead. This is a principle of Servant Leadership. The Warrior Practices What They Preach! And those they lead follow their example.
Our Commander Jesus is the Ultimate Dedication Offering. He presented the 'Present' of His Perfect Life to Father God. He gave Himself for you and I as the Perfect 'Grain Offering,' the grain of wheat that falls into the ground and dies (John 12:24). The Perfect 'Burnt Offering,' completely consumed on the altar of the Cross. The Perfect 'sin Offering,' blood poured out on the altar of the cross and taken outside the camp, and ashes poured out(Lev.4:12).
Our Commander Jesus Presented His Life the Perfect Dedication Offering for you and I. The Warrior's Life is their Dedication Offering to their Commander and King and we Present it to Him every day for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Ooooh Rah! Let's this song:
"In my life Lord,
Be Glorified, Be Glorified,
In my life Lord,
Be Glorified Today......"
Warrior at your side,
