Oh To Be Wise Meditations
But David answered, "No! I have to pay you what they're worth. I can't offer the LORD my God a sacrifice that cost me nothing." So David bought the threshing place and the oxen for 50 pieces of silver. David built an altar to the LORD there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then the LORD answered his prayer in behalf of the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped. Lord, I want to be a living sacrifice holy and pleasing to you. I dare not live a life that cost me nothing while my salvation cost you everything! Christ was sinless, and he offered himself as an eternal and spiritual sacrifice to God. This is why his blood is much more powerful and makes our consciences clear. Now we can serve the living God and no longer do things that lead to death.
