Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

God Helps Those

Supposedly the best known Bible verse in America is “God helps those who help themselves.” Which is funny. Because that verse isn’t in the Bible. That theory isn’t even in the Bible.

God does not help those who help themselves. God helps those who can’t help themselves.

God helps the widow, the orphan, the refugee.

Just goes to show how different our ways are from God’s ways.
