OUTLINE: DCLM DAILY MANNA TODAY 5TH MARCH 2021 DEVOTIONAL
Samuel, a prophet of God said, “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”. Obedience to God and His words brings earthly and eternal rewards. Willingness to do the needful is not enough; it must always go with obedience before it is acceptable to God.
It is often said that every act of obedience adds a new touch of beauty to the soul. Judah, the southern kingdom of Israel had gone into sin of disobedience and unrighteousness that threatened her national and economic integrity and favour with God. Isaiah called the attention of Judah to reason with God and amend their ways. The princes of the nation were rebellious and companions of thieves.
Bribery and corruption coupled with injustice were visible in the land. God gave them the option of repentance and called them to reason with Him and turn away from empty religion without righteousness. Many go to their places of worship today to make financial contributions like paying of tithes and offering, but they do not have valid relationship with God.
No amount of good works can earn salvation. God is willing to save all who come to Him in true repentance and obedience to His word. Our outward sacrifices and service bring no joy to God if inward faith and righteousness are missing. Gifts and offering are nothing to Him when they emanate from a corrupt and an unrighteous heart.
God wants sins of every form removed from our lives first before He can be pleased with our sacrifices of time, treasure and talents. He requires His people to come out of pride, profanity and external religion, and be in true fellowship with Him.
Thought For Today: Prompt obedience to God’s word is the hallmark of true Christianity.
