Day 43: Worship Thought – “Sacrifice”

Scriptural Nuggets Daily Devotion

Scriptural Nuggets Daily Devotion You will be hard pressed to find even one moment of worship in scripture that didn’t cost the worshiper something.

Many of David’s psalms, even though written after the fact, came as a result of some spiritual struggle, hardship, of physical pain.

The only OT proclaimed method of worship was sacrifice and complete obedience – not to mention the early mornings, late nights and occasional torn clothing.

Sacrifice, by definition, means that the worshiper loses the thing sacrificed, so why do we think our worship should not cost us something?

Jesus says, “If you love me, keep my commandments”.

That means that we do it his way and not ours. It is God we are pleasing in our worship, not ourselves. So I guess the question to ask is, what kind of worship does God desire from me, and then don’t presume you know the answer. As soon as you think you know, that’s where the depth of your worship ends.
