Truly, it is God who dictates and directs what is right. This message is right for our time.
God has a complaint against Israel, his people and their response to his request were to try to appease him with their sacrifices hoping that God would leave them alone by doing so. But their sacrifices and other religious rituals did not please him. God wants changed hearts and lives. He wants his people to be fair, just, merciful and humble. God wants all his children to become a living sacrifice (Romans 12: 1-2), not just doing religious deeds. And if God has shown us what is right, he expects us to respond appropriately.
In my efforts to please God,I have to examine myself on regular basis if I am being fair in my dealings with people, if I show mercy not only to people that get along with me but also to those who wrong me, and also if I am learning humility in my walk with the Lord.
This message hits home for me.I am grateful that God is the one who shows us what is right and what is wrong from the beginning of creation.I am also grateful to God for my freedom through Christ.It is his sacrifice that has transformed my life.I remember what my life was like before I met him. I am personally convicted today to get serious and step up to start living a life of obedience to God and his directions as revealed in his word.I don’t want to continue to take God for granted anymore.Obedience is better than sacrifice.(1 Samuel 15: 22).I really thank God for this message.
I want to thank God for our Pastor, Dr. Fred Soyele, a spirit-filled, awesome and caring man of God. He continues to teach the word of God, rightly dividing it and making it applicable to our lives.
And to anyone out there, who is looking or has been praying for a Bible-based church where you will receive the true teaching of God’s word, I will encourage you to visit. But if you cannot join us in the body, continue to visit our website regularly. Either way, you will not be disappointed.
