When we think of meeting God do we do so in fear over what we have done and how we have failed him, ourselves and others? This should not be! Yes, as the psalmist says, we should examine ourselves to be sure there is no unconfessed sin, but meeting God as a believer in Jesus Christ should be a time of celebration for all he has done for us and what we have in store for us in the future! Your sin is washed in the blood! He has thrown them as far as the east is from the west! There. Is. No. Condemnation. NOTHING can separate you from his love. Rejoice in his presence. You are a new creation. The joy of the Lord is your strength!


The Israelites were well aware of what a sacrifice was. It was a dead animal! For example, they would take a lamb and slaughter it. Then they would lay it on the fire and roast it before God. It was dead! Other than the food value, dead animals are worthless. God calls us to be a living sacrifice. That means, that like the lamb, we are sacrificed before him.The obvious difference, is we are not dead. The bad news to that? Living sacrifices have a tendency to crawl off the altar when the heat gets to be too much. We are called to be sacrifices to give our lives to God and to be dead to the heat of the worlds temptations.

Daily give your allegiance to Christ. Don’t be a crawling sacrifice!



Trusting others is hard. Especially for those of us who have been lied to, misled, or had people in our lives who claimed to be our friends but eventually turned their backs on us. It’s hard to trust someone who throws you under the bus whenever they feel the need to feel good about themselves.

Too many people love you for what they can get from you. When you can’t deliver anymore they toss you out like yesterday’s paper. Others may claim to love you and make promises they can’t (or later refuse) to fulfill. God doesn’t love you for what you can give him, he loves you for what he can give you. He’s never made a promise that he couldn’t fulfill. You can trust him to deliver.
