March 8 - Choice Gleanings

 DAILY READINGS: Exodus:26:31 to 27:19; Psalm 72; Acts:15:22-35

In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Hebrews:10:6

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him…and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. Isaiah:53:10

God found no delight in the Old Testament offerings because an imperfect person presented an innocent but unwilling substitute. These offerings could only temporarily cover sin. Christ, the perfect servant, delighted to live in obedience to God. He was the capable and willing offering that completely removed sin. God’s pleasure in Him is confirmed in His resurrection and the placement of all things into His hand. Praise the Lamb, for He is worthy. —George Ferrier

As Lamb of God, Thy path we view, Thy Father’s will Thy whole delight;

To Calvary we trace Thy way, each step of Thine, with glory bright.

— Inglis Fleming
