Topic: Acceptable Sacrifice

Text: Psalm 20:1-9

1(To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;

2Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;

3Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.

4Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.

5We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.

6Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.

7Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

8They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

9Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

Key Verse: “Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.” Psalm 20:3


Sacrifice according to our key verse means an offering made to pay forbsin or appeal for favour from God. There are sacrifices that are acceptable to God such as a living sacrifice and that is what we should offer unto God.

To offer an acceptable sacrifice, you must be clean. There must be no stain or defilement in your Iife. If any unclean thing is found in you then there is no amount of sacrifice you make that will be accepted. You will end up offering an unworthy sacrifice. Cain and Abel were brothers who offered sacrifices to God. Cain who brought a portion of his farm produce was rejected. On the other hand, Abel who offered the best of his animals was accepted by God. The difference in their sacrifices was the state of their hearts.

You have a responsibility today to repent of your sins, so that your sacrifice of praise, thanksgiving offering, singing, ushering, prayers, helping the needy will be acceptable to God.

Further Reading: Romans 12:1,2

Prayer for today: Lord, I offer my life as a living sacrifice unto You.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
