C

Lord, help me to offer up my best to you today—for what else will you accept as a fragrant offering if we withhold the choicest sacrifice? Will you accept instead a blemished lamb? As you offered to me your best sacrifice, help me to offer to you my best. I realize that my best is still as filthy rags, but in your Son’s blood, see it as perfect. And as short of glory as my best is, it is still something I am unable to offer without your help. For sinful man that I am, I desire to throw my best time, talent, treasure, and thoughts to vanities. I, on my own, am much more like the man of Psa 2:1, than like the man of Psa. 1:2. But in you, I can give my best. This you will accept as a worthy sacrifice.

Often I had tried to make myself a Christian; and failing of course in such efforts, I began at last to think that for some reason or other I could not be saved, and that the best I could do was to take my fill of this world, as there was no hope for me beyond the grave.
