Are you a priest? Have you brought an offering or sacrifice to the Lord?
Eli was a priest who served God at the tabernacle in Shiloh. He is most remembered for his blessing on Samuel’s mother and for his contribution to Samuel’s first prophecy. Eli had two wicked sons who served in the tabernacle, but they did not know the Lord. Even though Eli was not perfect by any means and although he was a priest, he made several mistakes in his lifetime. He failed to rebuke and discipline his sons. Eli’s family was ultimately judged because of their unrepentant sin.
Being careful to avoid Eli’s mistakes, we will think through specific ways that each of us can be better servants of Christ . Think about the sacrifice Jesus has made for us. In response to His grace, what sacrifice of your own do you have to offer the Lord today?
