Scripture makes it clear that God respects and accepts certain acts of worship, rather than other types of worship. As you can see in the previous sections of this blog, it is important that our worship is acceptable to the Lord. Our worship should be Biblical. It should follow the positive examples that we see as our guide. Since we are under the New Covenant, we longer provide sacrifices to the Lord, however, we can learn from the early believers the heart posture behind the sacrifices.
Proverbs 21:3, “To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.”
This Proverb displays God’s heart for worship. God does not want sacrifices of worship that are not backed by a lifestyle that is pleasing to Him. Sacrifices of worship and practices are not acceptable if there is no righteousness and justice within the life of the believer. God prefers a continual way of life that honors Him, not a sacrifice that is required or sacrifices for personal gain. COPYRIGHT: JUSTDISCIPLE.COM
