TOPIC: GODS STANDARD, THE BE SAME AS ALWAYS

MEMORY VERSE:
"And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams" .(1 Samuel 15:22)

Today's Text:
2 Samuel 6:1-7

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Romans 9:16-33
Genesis 27-28

MESSAGE:

.After David had conquered the Jebusites and established Jerusalem as his seat of power, the next thing he did was to bring the Arkof the covenant (signifying the presence of the Lord) into
the capital city. David mobilised the men of Israel to go up to Baale ofJudah to carry the ark and covey it to Jerusalem. They went in a procession singing, dancing and making merry.

Though David had a right motive, his method was wrong. God had earlier
instructed the lsraelites that the Ark was to be carried on the shoulders ofthe priests (1 Chron. 15:15). But, Israel constructed a brand new cart tocarry it, perhaps, as special honour to the Lord. However, God's standarddoes not change.

Today, we hear of modern Christianity and refined Gospel, but Jesus isthe same yesterday, today and forever (Heb. 13:8). As the procession came to the threshing floor of Nakon, the cart ran into a pothole. The driver, Uzzah, reached out and took hold of the Ark of God so that it doesnot fall because the cart stumbled. The Lord instantly struck him dead.

Do not try to tamper the standard God has set in the Scripture concerning life, marriage, business, etc, or else you may hit a pothole. Though it may appear queer at the beginning, His standard will always emerge the best. If David and his men had kept to the commandment of God, thecelebration would have ended with joy and God's blessings. Those who claim to follow God must also follow the instructions and examples clearly
laid out in His Word.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS
To obey is better than a million sacrifice.

PRAYER
Oh God, help me to always stick to your standard even in the face of difficulty. Amen. — with Authority Chigaemezu F Ogbonna and 49 others.
