Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.
Do we rob God when someone in our Church offends us? This is the snare of the devil. We stop attending and with it, our offerings to God.
Tuesday, May 31, 2011: Hebrews 13:15 (NKJV)
Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
What is a hymn? When sung with others at Church, it is an offering to God.
Wednesday, June 1, 2011: Hebrews 13:16 (NKJV)
But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Do children share easily? No, we have to teach them. Adults forget to share also. Sharing is well pleasing to God.
Thursday, June 2, 2011: Hosea 14:2 (NKJV)
Take words with you, and return to the LORD.
Say to Him, take away all iniquity;
Receive us graciously, for we will offer the sacrifices of our lips.
What are we to do after sin? Return to the Lord (repent). Ask for forgiveness. Offer a sacrifice of prayer and praise.
Friday, June 3, 2011: Romans 12:1 (NKJV)
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.
What can we present to God? Our bodies, as living sacrifices are what transform us closer to the image of His Son.
