Key Scriptures: Malachi 1-4; Deuteronomy 7:7-8, Jeremiah 31:3-4; Ecclesiastes 5:1-7; Mark 12:30; 1 Corinthians 15:20 & Isaiah 4:1.

When the Israelites came to offer sacrifice, it was in fact an act of worship unto the Lord and there were only two things required of them : whatsoever they offered it had to be the first and it had to be the best.

Jesus Himself was the firstfruits of the resurrection and now we, as New Testament believers, are called to give the first and best of ourselves to the Lord, in every area of our lives. This indeed is our spiritual act of worship unto God.
