Leviticus 2:1 (NIV) “When someone brings a grain offering to the Lord, his offering is to be of fine flour. He is to pour oil on it, put incense on it.”
(Read Leviticus 2:1-13)

The grain offering in today’s Bible text typifies offering our lives to God. God wants our lives ground very small; the way He can deal with without any opposition from us. Oil typifies the Holy Spirit. It is impossible to offer our lives acceptably to God without the help of the Holy Spirit. Incense or Frankincense (in some translations) is an aromatic gum that produces a nice scent when burnt; it typifies worship. We are to offer our lives with the help of the Holy Spirit and in worship.

In Leviticus 2:2, part of the fine flour and oil are taken, with ALL of the frankincense. What does this signify? The whole of the frankincense, all worship is to go to God. You can praise a man for the good things he does, you can thank a man, but you must never worship any man; not your pastor or bishop. All worship must go to God.

In Leviticus 2:11, no leaven and honey is permitted in our offering. Withholding leaven means to offer our lives in sincerity and truth (1 cor. 5:7-8). Don’t make a commitment you’re not ready to fulfill. No leaven, no honey, no sweet words; don’t say anything to God that you won’t stand behind to fulfill.

In Leviticus 2:13, every offering must be offered with salt. Salt signifies a covenant relationship with God. God accepts our offering on the basis of a covenant relationship with Him. God receives acceptably only offerings that come from a committed heart and a committed life.

Go into today determined to offer your life as a living sacrifice in a way that is acceptable and pleasing to God.

Prayer: Commit your heart and your life afresh to God today, ask that He will help you offer your life in a way that will please Him.
