Don't Appear Before the LORD Empty

Good Morning,
I hope you are looking forward to your weekend, and that part of your plans include attending church tomorrow. I am always thrilled with the opportunity of worship, learning, and surrender. And in addition to those things is the opportunity to fellowship with God's people. What a joy it is to go to church!
Please pray for our services tomorrow, pray for those who are lost, pray for those who need spiritual revival, and pray for those who need God's physical and/or emotional healing. Thank you!
Deuteronomy 16:16-17, "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty: 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee."
The laws for the three yearly feasts are here repeated; that of the Passover, that of Pentecost, and that of Tabernacles; and the general requirement concerning the people's attendance. Never should a believer forget where he has come from. God's grace provides freedom from guilt and misery, His gift of salvation wasn't free, but came with the greatest of cost to the Saviour. We should rejoice in what we receive from God, and as we respond with gratitude in our service and sacrifice to Him; our duty must be our delight, as well as our enjoyment. If those who were under the law must rejoice before God, much more we that are under the grace of the gospel; which makes it our duty to rejoice evermore, to rejoice in the Lord alway. All who make God their joy, may rejoice in hope, for He is faithful that has promised.
The greatest way for us to prove our love and adoration for Jesus is to make sure that we don't appear before Him empty. Worship is characterized with thanksgiving, and giving of ourselves and our substance back to the Lord is at the heart of true worship. Romans 12:1, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable untoGod, which is your reasonable service." Matthew Henry states, "We receive from the Lord every day the fruits of his mercy. Let us render ourselves; all we are, all we have, all we can do: and after all, what return is it for such very rich receivings? It is acceptable to God: a reasonable service, which we are able and ready to give a reason for, and which we understand."
Make sure to always bring something of value that you can present to God as a token of your love and worship of Him.
Your Friend,

--
Pastor Mike Abbott
