  • SignificanceFellowship with GodFulfilling the duties of the divine relationship and purposeIn the memorial feast, we fellowship at God's table, as did the partaker of the Peace Offering.

  • In combinationIn brief, none of the altar-offerings was sufficient in itself, so the Law overcame this limitation by delegating to each of them a special primary function.

    This enabled each one to help make good the deficiencies of the others with the result that, [together], they taught the etiquette of sacrificial worship in its completeness.

    As we have seen, they all, in combination, made plain to every Israelite that

  • His first and fundamental need was forgiveness for his sin (Sin Offering)

    That his contrition was of no avail unless it expressed itself in amendment of life (Trespass Offering)In combination

  • In combination That God's willingness to pardon him brought him under the obligation to dedicate himself (Burnt Offering)

    and his labors (Meal & Drink Offerings), unconditionally to God's service

  • In combination And that he, enjoying the privilege of fellowship with God, had to realize its implications in terms of holy living (Peace Offering)

  • What about us? Forgiveness Amendment of life Completely dedicate ourselves Dedicate our labors Fellowship with God

    Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

    I had a reading for this morning, but seeing as I think we want to finish sometime TODAY, well forgo reading the entire book of Leviticus.If, through baptism and submission to Yahweh, we humbly offer ourselves as a willing sacrifice, we can take advantage of this hope. This humble self-sacrifice is expressed in the words of a beautiful hymn:

    Take my life and let it be / Consecrated Lord to Thee / Take my moments and my days / let them flow in ceaseless praise / Take my hands and let them move / At the impulse of thy love / Take my feet and let them be / swift and beautiful for thee

    Take my voice and let me sing / always only for my King / Take my lips and let them be / filled with messages from Thee / Take my silver and my gold / not a mite would I withhold / Take my intellect and use / every power as thou shalt choose

    Take my will and make it Thine / It shall be no longer mine / Take my heart, it is thine own / It shall be thy royal throne / Take my love; my Lord I pour / At thy feet its treasure store / Take myself, and I will be / Ever, only, all for thee

    Let us pray that we are all seizing the time
