“However, the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price, for I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God which cost me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.” 2 Samuel 24:24 NASB
What are you willing to sacrifice to God? What have you placed on the altar of God? Your Sunday morning in church? What about the rest of the week? Your mornings, or a designated time each day, to prayer and Bible reading? Your time to serve others? In and outside the church. To praying for and sharing the gospel with your neighbor? How much are you willing to used by God?
Jesus gave His life.
🌹saying, “The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed and be raised up on the third day.” And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me. Luke 9:22-23 NASB
“All the earth will worship You, And will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name.” Selah. — Psalm 66:4
Do you ever think on Sunday morning, as you are worshiping the Lord in hymns, about others gathered together worshiping the Lord God?
I imagine all the churches of the world gathered in one accord giving praises to Almighty God. I know with time zones that this image is not reality but I so look forward to that day when it will be reality — all nations bowed in worship to the Sovereign One.
I wonder what God sees on Sunday mornings as the sun moves from east to west and people are getting ready to go to a gathering place for worship. Does He see a continual 24 hour worship? Is He pleased by what He sees and hears on His Sabbath day? Does He see an eagerness amongst His people to bring offerings of praise and worship to His house? I wonder.
How will your worship be different and will it be pleasing to the Lord today? Draw near to Him and give yourself in worship today.
