Readings: 2 Samuel, chapters 21-24
“But the king said to Araunah, ‘No, I’ve got to buy it from you for a good price. I’m not going to offer God, my God, sacrifices that are no sacrifice.’ ”
2 Samuel 24:24-25
- In this verse David is purchasing a threshing floor and ox so that he can build an altar and give a sacrifice to God. He hopes this sacrifice will stop the epidemic that God has been putting Israel through.
- This verse shows that God needs a sacrifice that is worthy in order to forgive our sins; which highlights how important Jesus is. There is no way we would ever be able to continually give a sacrifice deserving enough for our forgiveness. Jesus is the only one who can make that happen.
Today feels like Friday for me and I am pumped to have a couple of days off. I need to re-organize my life 🙂
Stretched for 30 minutes yesterday and prayed for about 10.
