2 Kings 6:1-23; Jeremiah 39:1-40:18; Hebrews 10:1-18

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

If Adam and Eve had been faithful to God’s plan of obedience,
there never would have been a need for sacrifice. God’s plan of
sacrifice was necessary because obedience failed. Fortunately for
us, Christ came fulfilling both needs—complete obedience to the
Father and also a perfect sacrifice for us and our sins. Is it any wonder
that the Lord has such delight in His Son? —Jeff Frey

O Thou, in whose presence my soul takes delight,
On whom in affliction I call,
My comfort by day and my song in the night,
My hope, my salvation, my all! —Joseph Swain
