Oh To Be Wise Meditations
LORD forgive me for not laying all on the altar. I am offer my life as a living sacrifice and I pick and choose what to lay down. In that altar the blood is there. The blood above the mercy seat shed for our sin and sanctification. The Holy fire is burning hot with fervor I must submit more of myself and let go of this world. I tend to look back like Lot's wife knowing all will be burnt up. My will, my mind, my emotions, my time, my talents, I need to lay down on the altar. That holy fire cleansing me daily, gives me the passion and purpose I need to have for your Kingdom. My mind is what I struggle with daily. I see my whole body on the altar but my head sticking out. I have not allowed the your all consuming fire to consume the flesh from my thinking. I am sorry LORD. My thoughts are precious to you and my mind is many times not focused on you even in acts of service. On the altar I must live my life from. Burning away daily the inner flesh and refining my spirit to the Image of Christ. Head to toe with my whole heart I must in constant contact with the presence of God. His deposit of grace is within me, I must fan the flame to the glory of God! You must remove the old yeast of sin so that you will be entirely pure. Then you will be like a new batch of dough without any yeast, as indeed I know you actually are. For our Passover Festival is ready, now that Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Therefore let us make a feast, not with the old leaven, neither with the leaven which is in wickedness or of bitterness, but with the leaven of purity and of holiness.
