12 “If his offering is a goat, then he shall offer it before the Lord 13 and lay his hand on its head and kill it in front of the tent of meeting, and the sons of Aaron shall throw its blood against the sides of the altar. 14 Then he shall offer from it, as his offering for a food offering to the Lord, the fat covering the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails 15 and the two kidneys with the fat that is on them at the loins and the long lobe of the liver that he shall remove with the kidneys. 16 And the priest shall burn them on the altar as a food offering with a pleasing aroma. All fat is the Lord’s. 17 It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, in all your dwelling places, that you eat neither fat nor blood.”
- Peace offering is a personal offering. Through it, the offerer demonstrates his thanksgiving, devotion and dedication to the Lord. It also shows the harmonious relationship between God and man as well as man and his neighbor.
- The “peace offering” is also translated as “fellowship offering.” It concludes with worship and the joining of family or friends in a sacred meal of the meat not burned on the altar.
- Christians often speak of joyful communal meals such as those associated with the “fellowship offering.” In thanksgiving services or love feasts at church or homes, believers gather to share and encourage one another. Then relationships with God and people are deepened.
- Though to a great extent our spiritual lives are experienced as individuals, spiritual growth takes place in a community of believers. The goal of our cell groups is to develop genuine Christian relationships and to encourage spiritual growth in order to build up the body of Christ.
- What is my cell experience? Is there any way we can intentionally grow in order to deepen our relationship with God and with each other?
Thank God for my cell group and my church where I enjoy warm fellowship and genuine encouragement.
