Heartfelt devotion, we should give nothing less.
Through Leviticus God instructs His people in how He is to be worshiped. God is Holy and His people are expected to be Holy.
It goes through the offerings in which God is to be worshiped.
THE BURNT OFFERING
THE GRAIN OFFERING
THE FELLOWSHIP OFFERING
THE SIN OFFERING
THE RESTITUTION OFFERING
This manual of worship is highly detailed but makes it clear these details are important to God.
The focus was on the motivation behind the offering, the offering was only acceptable to God when the worshipers devotion is heartfelt.
Its no good just going through the motion of just going to church if you are doing it like a robot and not from the heart
Whether we realize it or not, our perspectives are being challenged or distorted by the pagan culture around us. Our worship and morality are constantly being influenced, Romans 12 verse 2: Challenges us about that:
“Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God”.
The Bible which is often called the ‘Manufactures Handbook’ gives instruction, on how to deal, with the outside influences of the world we live.
The Old Testament sacrifices to God were types of the ultimate sacrifice, that were made by Jesus Christ the Son of God.
He died in our place on the cross. He became the price that was needed to be paid for our sin.
God had His Plan of redemption for His people (you and me) all the way through the Bible
