Offering Thanksgiving

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 50:1-23

Psalm 50 makes it abundantly clear that God is in control and sovereign over all. What drew my attention most in this psalm is how it shows us that this all-powerful, mighty and magnificent God wants us to willingly give Him our hearts and desires for us to offer up to Him an earnest and genuine sacrifice of thanksgiving.

"The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!" (vs. 23)

How do you show God that your heart is given to Him? Describe what you do to offer thanksgiving to God. Would you say that the people who know you can see that God is the desire of your heart? Tami

Tami,

Spurgeon says it so eloquently and oh that I wished that I could express myself like you and Spurgeon both do so well.
Spurgeon's words," She excelled in the visible, but in the inward grace, which is the one thing needful, she sadly failed. Too many in these days are in the same condemnation. And pay thy vows unto the most High. Let the sacrifice be really presented to the God who seeth the heart, pay to him the love you promised, the service you covenanted to render, the loyalty of heart you have vowed to maintain. O for grace to do this! O that we may be graciously enabled to love God, and live up to our profession! To be, indeed, the servants of the Lord, the lovers of Jesus, this is our main concern. What avails our baptism, to what end our gatherings at the Lord's table, to what purpose our solemn assemblies, if we have not the fear of the Lord, and vital godliness reigning within our bosoms?"

My simple and not so refine would sayGod is pleased with our offering of thanksgiving but wants our sacifrice to come from a really true heart of love who reveres/fears God and is every so mindful of His grace upon which we are givng salvation. We sure good never work for it we should have a sincere heart of gratitude to God Who makes such wonderful promises to us Who humble and sincerely put focus what He has done for us than our sacfrice which are already His posession.He was a willing,submissive purposefully sacfrice from our hearts to love Him and give Him due respect of His special promises of those we are not able to give but our hearts, talents and lives.
