The word “Offering” is by Strong’s definition: The act of: bringing to; setting before; sacrificing; presenting; a gift. It is used 728 time in the Bible, most (over half) in Leviticus and Numbers. In the Old Testament it deals with the sacrificial system set in place by God and performed by the priest in the
Temple. It is used only
23 times in the New Testament. Let's look today at these teachings.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. – Rom. 12:1
Take your ordinary everyday life and place it before God as an offering.
Worship is saying: “I trust you” even when our eyes don’t see it - “Thy will be done” even when our hearts don’t feel like it-“I’ll follow you” even when our minds don’t understand it
No greater act of worship than giving God all of you. (Open your hands even if you have to pry them open)
Is this your prayer?
“Dear God, take my ordinary everyday life, and make it an offering to You.”
