Topic: The Preservation Power Of Sacrifice
Today Thursday 15 June, 2017
SCRIPTURE: The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice. Psalm 20:1.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A sacrificial man is too dangerous to be dared, too rugged to be routed, too protected to be confronted, and too surrounded by fire to surrender.
It has been established that sacrifice has preservative power. There are scriptural examples of people who sacrificed and were later preserved by their sacrifice when confronted with life-threatening situations. In our study today, we shall consider the example of Samuel.
Samuel lived a sacrificial life in all his days. God used him to save the nation of Israel by the power of sacrifice (1 Samuel 7:10).
There was a time when God told Samuel to anoint a king over Israel from the house of Jesse, even though Saul was still on the throne. Samuel was afraid that Saul would kill him if he heard that another king was anointed. So, God told him to take a heifer for sacrifice.

God was making Samuel to know that sacrifice has the power to preserve his life from being destroyed by Saul.
That is, if he sheds the blood of an animal, his own blood could not be shed by anyone.
Sacrifices avert death. A sacrificial man is too dangerous to be dared, too rugged to be routed, too protected to be confronted, and too surrounded by fire to surrender.
Beloved, do not be a superficial Christian; be a sacrificial one.
Remember this: A sacrificial man is too dangerous to be dared, too rugged to be routed, too protected to be confronted, and too surrounded by fire to surrender.
1. Make up your mind to live a sacrificial life.
2. Ask God to break every power of mammon in your life.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the baptism of selfless sacrifice. Help me LORD, to sacrifice totally and consistently, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
