You may not think so. In fact, you may have been thinking of hanging up that celebration hat permanently. For you, celebration may simply be a fleeting memory, never to return again.
The Israelites were a celebrating bunch. Much beyond their regular festivals throughout the year, there were such opportunities whenever they wanted to. But what’s there to celebrate?
They celebrated their relationship with God through the fellowship oferings. These were also called peace offerings (Lev 3). They celebrated their relationship with God and with each other. These were also offered along with sin offerings – indicating that they celebrated the restoration of their relationship with God.
No matter what you have done or where you are in life, God is waiting and longing for you to turn from your situation and return to him. He is waiting to celebrate a restored relationship with you!
