Samuel 6:1-3 The Ark of the Lord remained in the Philistine territory seven months in all. Then the Philistines called in their priests and diviners and asked them, "What should we do about the Ark of the Lord? Tell us how to return it to its own country."
"Send the Ark of the God of Israel back with a gift," they were told. "Send a guilt offering so the plague will stop. Then, if you are healed, you will know it was his hand that caused the plague."
Lord, just like these Philistines, so many unbelievers seem to think they can bargain or bribe you to get into heaven. They totally miss that all they need is a broken and repentant heart.
You do not desire a sacrifice, or I would offer one.
You do not want a burnt offering.
The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.
You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
Lord, I pray that you would grant many unbelievers this broken and repentant heart this weekend as they attend Easter services at different churches. I know that you are the only one who can give this kind of repentance. I pray that there will be many, many new believers this weekend. In Jesus' name, amen. <3
