PRACTICAL CHRISTIANITY– Monday October 16th
2017
Memorise: For I desired mercy,
and sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. Hosea 6:6
Read: Psalm 51:12-18 (KJV)

51:12 Restore
unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
51:13 Then
will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
51:14 Deliver
me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall
sing aloud of thy righteousness.


.

51:15 O
Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
51:16 For
thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt
offering.
51:17 The
sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God,
thou wilt not despise.
51:18 Do
good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
Bible in one year: Galatians 1-3,
Daniel 8:1-14, Hymn: Sing hymn 14
MESSAGE:
Going
to church is not same as knowing God. There are many people in church today
whose lifestyles do not reflect having any experiential knowledge of who God
is. Furthermore, being involved in church activities is not the same as loving
God. If you love God, it will show in the way you conduct the affairs of your
life. God is a merciful God who desires the prosperity of His children, and He
is in search of hearts that are longing for Him. Open Heaven 16 October 2017:
Monday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Practical Christianity. God
is calling us into an intimate knowledge of His son and His attributes. If you
know God, the evidence will be seen in the way you relate with people around
you. This includes your colleagues in the office as well as your neighbours at
home. If your lifestyle does not match with God’s word, Open Heavens 17 October 2017 no matter how much you
give to Him or the activities you engage in to impress Him, you will not find
favour in His sight. The words of 1st Samuel 15:22 are very clear:

“…Hath the LORD as great delight
in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold,
to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.”

Some
time ago, at a gathering of God’s people at the Redemption Camp, I had to tell
everyone there that if you know you are not genuinely saved by the blood of the
Lamb, there is no need to give any offering to God. God will not accept the
offerings of sinners. It is an abomination before Him (Proverbs 15:8). Our lives must
count for God first, before other things can follow suit.

.
God
wants us to obey His voice and follow His word for our lives. He wants His
children to all be true people who impact the lives of others positively. Living
a godly life is all that God desires from us. When we live according to His
standards, He will be pleased with all that we have to offer. Morality and
rituals cannot grant us access to the mercy of God. Before the prodigal son
could receive mercy, he had to come to his senses and amend his ways by going
back to his father. God is longing for those who will praise Him in spirit and
in truth. He is desperate for those who will magnify Him not for what they can
get from Him but for who He is. Do you know that you can come before God with
big offerings and yet stir up His anger? This will not be your lot in Jesus’
Name. No amount of sacrifice from us can equal His sacrifice for us. The scope
of this sacrifice can be seen in these words of Romans 8:32:
“He that spared not his own son,
but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also give us all
things.”
 
Key Point
Obedience is better than
sacrifice
