Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: ≈ Hebrews 10:5
“The Peace-Offering” in Leviticus 3:1, received 36.62% of your votes. Thanks for voting. That is a wonderful choice, especially, as we reflect on the reason for the Christmas season.
Based on the complex laws and rituals found in the Mosaic Law, one might think that there was no spur-of-the-moment praise under the covenants in the Old Testament. Not so! God has always been pleased to receive special offerings from Believers whose hearts and minds are dedicated to serving Him (Deuteronomy 10:12–22). Hence, a peace offering could be made any time a worshiper wanted to celebrate the goodwill or favor enjoyed from God.
These worshipers could present a special offering unto the Lord that was not part of the customary rituals for appeasement, devotion, or atonement offerings, which everyone had to offer according to Leviticus 1–2; 4. For this peace offering was brought to the sanctuary out of the abundance of the worshiper’s heart as a free will propitiatory gift to say thank you to God for His spontaneous and unexpected generosity.
However, we do not have to make peace offerings today, because of the sacrifice made by Jesus on the cross. Glory be to God, for Jesus Christ, our Peace Offering.
