Happy Monday! “First, Christ said, “You did not want animal sacrifices or sin offerings or burnt offerings or other offerings for sin, nor were you pleased with them” (though they are required by the law of Moses). Then he said, “Look, I have come to do your will.” He cancels the first covenant in order to put the second into effect. For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.” Hebrews 10:8-10 NLT
God is loving and merciful. He sat aside the first covenant sacrifices that were not pleasing to Him and Christ became the ultimate sacrifice. I love the fact that He loves us so much that He sacrificed his Son to make away for our sins to be forgiven. God’s ways are greater than our own. His will is perfect in all its ways. As a loving Father he made a way for us to be holy.
Thank you Father, for your everlasting love. Lord be our strength and comfort today. Guide our actions, control our thoughts and our tongues. May every word that is spoken from our mouths be said in truth, gentleness and in love. Equip us with the knowledge and the will to do what is pleasing to you. Come alongside us and lead us in all our ways. Be with us at work, school, doctor appointments,etc. Allow us to be lights in this broken world. Help others to see you in us. Lord when we are overwhelmed/weak – make us strong in you. Don’t allow the enemy to steal our joy. In Jesus name, Amen.
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
