“If you present a peace offering to the Lord…you must offer a perfect animal. It may have no defect of any kind.” 22:21
Perfect animals represent God’s holy nature and foreshadow the completely perfect life Jesus sacrificed, free of any spot or blemish of sin.
What are the conditions of the sacrifices you offer up to God?
Do you sacrifice time for him or offer up whatever is left over in your day?
Do you budget giving into your finances, or only offer up what spare change you have?
Do you work hard for him when you serve others or the church, or do you half-heartedly get involved when you have to?
True worship involves sacrificeas we recognize God’s holy nature and offer up the best of what we have to him.
“I am the Lord who makes you holy. It was I who rescued you from the land of Egypt, that I might be your God. I am the Lord.” 21:32-33
Praise the God who rescued us from the wilderness and makes us holy. How deserving he is of all we have!
