FDD20 Centered On The Lord


This entry is part 20 of 27 in the series Fifty Days of Desperation

Leviticus 17:1-5 introduces an obscure issue.  The people of Israel were used to offering sacrifices anywhere and everywhere.  The priesthood must train the people to bring their sacrifices to the tabernacle.  The reason is given in verse 5.

“The reason is so that the sons of Israel may bring their sacrifices which they were sacrificing in the open field, that they may bring them in to the Lord, at the doorway of the tent of meeting to the priest, and sacrifice them as sacrifices of peace offerings to the Lord.” (Leviticus 17:5, NASB95)

The point of it is that they were already doing something.  That something needed to become God oriented.

There is no aspect of our lives that is not able to become God oriented.

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” (Colossians 3:17, NASB95)

Now that it is Friday, take some time to reflect on your week, and all of it’s activities.

Today, Ask the Lord to show you what you need to reorient towards Him.  There is no aspect of your life that is isolated from a God centered gratitude and activity.

Now consider the same for your church.  What do we do, or what should we begin to do in a manner that is oriented towards God?
