Those are items needed for living day to day, basic things with which they make their daily food. It goes to show that their daily lives are dependent on God alone and thus surrendering their daily needs to God.
In such a giving, it is acknowledging the God who provides for them. Likewise today, that is what the worship leader meant when he said that we worship God with our giving.
Today, we do not bring grains or oil or wine, but like the Israelites, we also bring our basic necessity in life and that happens to be our money. When we bring our offerings to God, we are worshipping the God who sees to our daily needs. For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you.
That is true worship. It is only biblical that we learn to acknowledge our provider God. For they gave according to their means, …beyond their means….. In Romans , Paul made an appeal to the Christians there to present their bodies as a living sacrifice which is their spiritual worship. Worship thus is about giving of ourselves to the Lord. Jesus himself defined true worship as one who worships God in spirit and in truth. I believe he is saying that when we worship God, it involves the whole person. In spirit simply means that it is spiritual and when it is spiritual, it is about the whole person.

Great refresher, or intro for new believers. Kendra rated it liked it Dec 26, When we worship in the fullness of our lives, God then fills us to be able to affect our world. We then exit to serve God through proclaiming His Word, serving those around us and exalting His name in all the earth. Why do you talk about money? The very first thing that was brought into the temple was an offering of grain or corn. This is symbolic of money. I go to Kenya every year and they trade their corn for other items such as meat, oil, etc.
God is interested in our money. He speaks of money more than He does either prayer or heaven. I think there has been a lot of negative about money and there has been a lot of error through the years. I hope that what I teach in the book is balanced. Many pastors have said this teaching has helped their churches understand the truth about tithes, first fruits and seed offerings. What do you think is the most important chapter of the book? In over 35 years of full time ministry, I have never heard anyone else teach about porters.
Enter to Worship, Exit to Serve by Ronald Gray (1988, Paperback)
In Nehemiah it lists porters between priest and singers. I thought that was very interesting and researched porters. It is basically a janitor. So between priests and porters are janitors. Servants that do the basics. People who do ordinary things to keep ministries going.
God wants servants. That is a concept that is lost in the big time world of church ministries today. Jesus came to serve.
Unity Church Of God in Christ
I believe that we can make a difference in our community, our neighborhoods, and our world if we are willing to lay our lives down to serve God. What do you hope to accomplish with your book? I hope that ordinary believers will recognize they have something to offer.
