What Shall I Offer To The Lord?

May 2018    

How shall I come before the Lord,
Bow down before the exalted God?
Will a perfect prescribed sacrifice
Offered on the altar suffice?

Will sacrifices in abundance,
Offered without repentance?
Will the gift of my firstborn alone,
My life transform, my sin atone?

You have shown, Lord, what is right
In Your sovereign righteous sight;
Justice and love for mercy,
For the oppressed and the needy.

Help me, O Lord God Almighty,
To walk with You in humility;
Set my hardened heart aflame,
To bless others in Your name.

With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?” He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

I call the mission field the “upside down world”, where things are done so differently from home, and our experiences are often extraordinary and rather scary. When I accepted...
