Good morning.


Jesus Christ, the spotless lamb of God, took upon Himself the sin of the world. It is therefore not necessary for us to religiously offer burnt offerings to atone for our sins.


However, that does not let us off the hook. There is something required of us as followers of Christ. Obedience to Gjd and His Word.


"But Samuel replied: “Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord ? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams." (1 Samuel 15:22)


The context of this scripture is about Saul trying to justify his actions which were contrary to God's instruction given to him by the Samuel.


Like Saul we try to justify our disobedience by going through the motions of religious activities.


Today as we join together to worship God, let us come to Him with a pure heart and not out of a weekly religious activity that we do to ease our consciences.


Enter His courts with thanksgiving and praise, giving Him glory.


Blessings.
