Psalm 50:14-Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High.
Sacrifice- to make "sacred", that is to permanently transfer something from the human (common) realm to the divine/supernatural (sacred) realm. Gifts given over to God, which could be worship, thankfulness, our service in ministry or to others, in our praise, prayer, our bodies as a living sacrifice, our time, talent, money, etc.
The command from God to mankind everywhere on today is to make "thankfulness" our sacrifice unto Him and keep our commitment as people of God to God.
How can we say "Lord, I love you"? How can we truly show our love to and for God? By obeying His command to offer Him a sacrifice of "Thankfulness". When we give God our sacrifice of "thankfulness", we are truly showing our gratitude to Him for who He is in our lives.
God says that thankfulness is a sacrifice that truly pleases me. Let's listen to Psalm 50:23-Whoever presents a thank-offering honors me.To whoever obeys my commands, I will reveal my power to deliver.
A "thankful" sacrifice is indeed important to God. is it important to you? If you are confessing God, then, yes it should be to you and I too.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for giving you a heart full of thankfulness towards Him.
I love you all.
