Without the shedding of Jesus blood, we would have no forgiveness. Without His blood we wouldn’t had been released from sin and it’s guilt; our punishment for sin would have been cancelled. Look back into the history of the Bible. Even the first plan required death to be set in motion for the cleansing of our sins through the sacrifice of animal blood; this was truly apart of God’s will.
Thank God we don’t have to do that anymore. Moses validated the cleansing of our sins by saying “This is the blood of the covenant commanded by God.” The purpose of the blood sacrifice was to establish us and set us in right standing with God.
Don’t let sacred acts, such as communion on Sundays become meaningless, performing them, but living in open disobedience with God according to God’s will. Don’t let your sacred acts unto God lack devotion or righteous living.
See, the problem with our sacrifices is our heart-attitude or how most will call it “heart posture”. Having a righteous relationship with God is the goal of God’s promise making activity. Thank God that nothing could ever diminish the completeness of Jesus’ atoning sacrifice. But, understand that it is possible to disappoint the triune God with meaningless conformity to form without genuine worship and enlightened service unto Him Who is worthy of all Glory, Honor, and praise. So, let’s make sure our heart-attitude is right before Abba, our Heavenly Father.
For Psalms 51: 16-17 says…
God doesn’t delight in vain sacrifices. He only accepts our broken spirits, contrite hearts, our thoroughly broken with sorrows for sins, our shattered pride and heart that is ready to love again. Going through the motions with God is not going to please God. Therefore, develop a true God-Worship.
For Isaiah 1:11 says…
Understand that your multiple sacrifices without the repentance of your sin and lack of obedience is meaningless! Therefore, fix your heart-attitude and sacrifice unto God with purpose!
Prayer: Dear Abba, our Heavenly Father we thank You for being so gracious, so loving and so merciful! Hallelujah! God, we ask that You help us do a self- heart attitude examination on ourselves so that we may improve our worship and servitude unto You. Glory to God! God, we pray as You are fixing our heart posture, please help us to remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us and that we purposely sacrifice with our hearts without sin and disobedience, in the mighty name of Jesus we pray, Amen. God bless you child of God 🙏🏽❤️
