Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"The Worship and Walk of Love"
"Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When any one of you brings an offering to the LORD, you shall bring your offering of the livestock—of the herd and of the flock."
Our Breakfast this morning is the Truth that bleeds into our Worship and Walk with God; Love. Love is why we Worship Him and Love is why we Walk with Him.
From the beginning of man's creation, God's Love, is why we were created, to walk in fellowship with our Creator God. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God their perfect fellowship with God was broken by sin; and the payment demanded for sin is death (Gen.2:17). God Showed this principle of the Sacrifice of life by clothing Adam and Eve with an animal's skin (Gen.3:21). After this original sin, there could be no fellowship between God and man - without the shedding of blood (Heb.9:22). Perfect animals were killed as sacrifices, pointing us to our Commander and King Jesus Christ, the Lamb that takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29).
Love made a way to restore our broken fellowship with God (John 3:16), through sacrifice.
That's what we see here in our text this morning: "When anyone brings an offering to the Lord...." Notice God says "When," not "If." This offering is expected and required by one who is motivated by Love, to be in fellowship with God (Luke 10:27). In other words, we give our life as a living sacrifice (Rom.12:1) to God, which is a reasonable response of Love. We give our life willingly because we Love our King more than we love our life (Luke 14:26). This is what my Commander Jesus did for me (John 15:13) - and it's the reasonable thing for me to do also, because I Love Him!
This is the Worship and Walk of Love that the Warrior practices every day, as we meet the Sacrifice of our King for us - with the Sacrifice of our self for Him! Ooooh Rah!
