We learned in 2 Chronicles 1:6 that Solomon sought God at the Tent of the Meeting offering 1,000 sacrifices in order to please and hear from the Lord.
What would be your 1,000 offerings?
The answer to this question can be found in Hebrews 13:15-16 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
It’s not a finite number, but it’s a continual offering and sacrifice of praise through four ways that pleases God.
1. Honoring Him with what comes out of our mouths. Everything we say should bring God glory.
2. Openly professing the Name of Jesus as Savior. This is the “applying the Word to my life” part. You witness and share Jesus with your lifestyle.
3. Doing good – being godly. We are called to be righteous, holy and just in all our dealings with the world.
4. Sharing with others – loving your neighbors. Jesus said it best that we are to love our neighbors as much as we love ourselves. This is where “being Jesus with skin on” can come in to play.
May our lives be a continual offering and sacrifice of praise. Amen?
