Offerings of the Heart

Micah 6:6-8

With what shall I come before the Lord,

And bow myself before the High God?

Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,

With calves a year old?

Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,

Ten thousand rivers of oil?

Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,

The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

He has shown you, O man, what is good;

And what does the Lord require of you

But to do justly,

To love mercy,

And to walk humbly with your God?

As Christians, we often feel we need to “do something’ for Him. Singing , praising , leading the choir, leading the church activities, etc . , all are good and yet God says He doesn’t delight in these. He died for us , out of His love for mankind – there was no other intention in His heart. If you think God is going to love you more or think of you more because of your deeds, you couldn’t be more wrong. It says clearly in His word – All He desires from us is ourselves. He wants your time – can you give it to Him? He doesn’t want your money or any other wordly matter. What He truly desires is to walk with you and have an everlasting relationship with His children – one that will not just start and end here on earth but will last forever and ever. What are offering the Lord today?  Give Him your heart , give Him your time, give Him the utmost priority in your life – That is what He truly desires . Amen !
