Burned Lambs (Numbers 28)

            “This is the offering…daily…”

            The people of Israel were instructed by God to sacrifice two lambs daily.  The first lamb was burned in the morning, while the second one was sacrificed in the evening.  The holocaust was daily and permanent.  There were no “days off” or vacation for the sacrificial lambs.

            The believers must bring their sins daily to God’s altar to be burned and destroyed.  Offering our sins to be “sacrificed” is not an option, it’s a necessity.  Even though Jesus died for our sin, and has forgiven all our sins, we must confess daily our trespasses, and shortcomings to the Lord.

            Every morning, I shall bring my pride before God to be burned and removed from my life.  Every evening, I will present my mind unto the Lord, and he will purify it with his holy fire. Every day I will sacrifice my pride, my guilt, my shame and my sins and I will submit wholly to my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.

            Which “lamb” do you need to bring before God today? I do not know your sins, but God and you are very much aware of it.  Do not allow sin to overpower and control your soul, and absolutely refuse the entrance to feelings of guilt and despair into your heart.

            Today, right now, you have the opportunity for bringing any sin or burden that is constantly afflicting your spirit, and ask God to burn it.  My advice is that you burn all of your sins daily; otherwise, sin will burn you.

            Better yet, offer yourself to God as a “living sacrifice” (Romans 12:1, 2) and He will take care of the rest.
