An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

(Pro 21:27 KJV) The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?

We have lost our understanding of “sacrifice” (2077).  We sing choruses like the one that says, “We bring a sacrifice of praise” and think we have it.  Keep in mind that Proverbs is written before the cross.  Because Jesus paid the price for our salvation and we talk about grace, we forget one of the great points that demanded the death on the cross.
(Heb 9:22 KJV) And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
We forget that part of Jesus fulfilling the law was to pay the price for our sin with His sacrifice.

So?  When you are having a bad day and are discouraged, take a moment to be grateful for the sacrifice that Jesus paid for your forgiveness.  Rejoice in that knowledge.  It won’t make the broken leg go away but will give it a different context.
