Good Morning May 5

In chapter 28 of the Old Testament book of Numbers the Lord gave instructions for daily offerings, Sabbath offerings monthly offerings, the Passover, and other regular festivals. It seems a bit tedious when we read these instructions. We know that in Christ we are not bound by Jewish laws, but a point still remains. We need continual reminders to stay close to the Lord. God is not an egotist that needs our devotions, but He knows that we need them – whether daily Bible reading and pray, weekly worship, church prayer rings, etc. – to stay a part of Him where we find our strength and life. God is spirit so we don’t see Him with our eyes, and our busyness always wants to pull us away from the things of the Lord. Yet, we find our greatest joy in being continually a part of His life. “Let us not give up meeting together, (or daily Bible reading and prayer) as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25)
