This song touches my heart in a very personal way. Several years ago during a conference at CCC while kneeling at the altar, Jesus was ministering deeply to me. The morning session had ended and all were dismissed for lunch, but I heard Jesus ask me to stay and have a wine lunch with Him. The lunch break became an intimate time between Jesus and me. I had a visual experience of Jesus on the floor with me offering a cup of wine to me, and as He held it up to my lips, I drank. Words can’t describe the beauty of the experience. Needless to say, I was a little drunk after the encounter. If you know what I mean.
Amplified Bible (AMP)
“So shall you heartily accept My commandments and conform your life and conduct to them. I am the Lord."
I’m very thankful, that Jesus paid the price for me! I don’t need to go through all the ritual sacrifices mentioned in this book. But, I do believe there is one sacrifice that I am continually commanded to offer the Lord…my flesh. As the fire of His Spirit descends upon this offering it is burned up, a sweet smell for the Lord. This isn’t a way to attain salvation (Jesus did that), but a way to demonstrate my love for Him, my devotion to Him.
