Some kind of offering

Hello, God has given me something in 1 Chronicles 6:31 which says,

“These are the men David put in charge of the music in the house of the LORD after the ark came to rest there.”

Music: God required a sacrifice, or offering, because He hated (hates) sin. He needed a sacrifice to satisfy Him, but there was no perfect sacrifice. There had to be something pleasing to God, like the aroma of incense or music, or an offering to atone for their sins. God hates sin.

Gospel: The sacrifices for the Israelites for animals. They did NOT fully atone for their sin. But God did send a sacrifice that fully and completely atoned for all of our sin. Jesus. God sent His only son to die on a cross for us (John 3:16-17). Jesus made us the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus atoned for our sin, but not only our sin, the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2)! He became the sin of the whole world and He died on the cross for us. He loves us so much.

Us: The Israelites in 1 Chronicles were praising God so that He would atone for their sin. But we praise God for a different reason: Because He atoned for our sin. We should praise Him, and worship Him, He is the creator, and He sent His only son to die for us on the cross. Thank You Jesus!

Closing prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your only son for us on the cross. Thank You, Jesus for dying for me on the cross. I pray that I would love You more. I pray that I would be closer to You. I pray that the underground church would someday be able to worship anywhere they want. Thank You for atoning for my sins. Thank You for being the sacrifice for the whole world. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
