Nugget – the Sanctifier

Posted on: March 14, 2014, by :

Following “The LORD, the SANCTIFIER” – AND – knowing that “OUR BODIES ARE HIS TEMPLE”, 1 Cor. 6:19),


‘…Bring Me an offering…’ Exodus 25:2

When it came time to build the Old Testament tabernacle, God said to Moses, ‘Do all things according to the pattern which I showed you’ (Exodus 25:40).


Whether you’re building a relationship, a career, a business or a ministry, it will always require among other things – sacrifice. The building of the tabernacle begins with these words:
‘Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring Me an offering. From everyone who gives it willingly with his heart you shall take My offering.’


Question: why would a God who is rich enough to pave His streets with gold, ask you for an offering?
Because only when you have a personal investment in something, will you give it your full attention, treasure it, prioritize it and protect it. -‘ Paul wrote about the generosity of the Christians in Macedonia: ‘They are being tested by many troubles, and they are very poor. But they are also filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity. For I can testify that they gave not only what they could afford, but far more and they did it of their own free will. They begged us again and again for the privilege of sharing…They even did more than we had hoped, for their first action was to give themselves to the Lord and to us, just as God wanted them to do’ (2 Corinthians 8:2-5 NLT).

So, are you willing to sacrifice?


Romans 12:1 (CJB) I exhort you, therefore, brothers, in view of God’s mercies, to offer yourselves as a sacrifice, living and set apart for God. This will please him; it is the logical “Temple worship” for you.
