    What can you offer to God? Or What did you offer to God?

    I know I am not worthy as His child, I do not follow His commandments, as a punishment to my sins, I told myself to attend the mass every day at six o'clock in the morning. This is not to clean or make my image good to others, but this is my will that I want to do, I am trying to be a good person, I am trying to follow His commandments. I just realized that sometimes, God will make a way to make His child go back in faith with Him.

    This is a very interesting question guiding us to evaluate our faith.
    One thing that is worth looking at is tithing. Is that even offering to God?
    I wonder if we follow the two great commandments by Jesus is that love an offering?
    Perhaps praying to God is an offering. I know when my children communicate with me, I count it as a blessing.
    All and all I am only certain that my devotion to God is an offering.

    There really is nothing we have to offer God.  Because of what He offers us through Jesus the Christ we can have life and have it abundantly, John 10:10. I suggest that you prayerfully read the book of Mark (check out the Bible Gateway site and choose either the NASB or the ESV as a good starting place), asking God to give you understanding of His Word as you read. Take hold of His throne of grace and earnestly seek Him for He promises "food" for the "hungry heart" that feeds us with more than we can ask or even think to ask from Him!

    I offer my life as a living sacrifice as said in Romans 12:1. I often submit to examples, experiences and trials proving that God's promises do work. So far, so good. I enjoy it daily.

      The "therefore" at the beginning of Ro.12:1 is beautiful, coming off 11:33, leading us into chapter 12's teaching. The worship of submission to God's will after He has granted grace-filled repentance truly is abundant life. John 15:5 is the strength!

    Yes...yes, and for trying, striving, yearning, you have my Love and God's Compassion. 6 a.m is a very good time as much of nature is still asleep. The hustle and bustle of life have not started and the silence of nature will enhance your receptivity to Grace.

    God Loves us; He loves us infinitely more than we can ever love ourselves, so when you can, throw away the unworthiness. Doesn't your mom know that you're sometimes naughty? Does she ever hold it against you?

    Do not think of punishments, but only obstacles or impediments standing in your way, and yes, like me, you will stumble, and that's healthy too. See life that way and create the feeling of acceptance. Not a negative one, but a willingness to pick yourself up and try again. You will stumble, no doubt, but God Loves you, and if self-effort is present, He will guide you every step of the way.

    Finally, do remember that God is always in charge. Nothing happens without His Will and Consciousness. Strive, yes, but feel the results of your efforts are always in His hands.

    What do I offer? I pray, both verbally and interiorly; meditate, serve human beings to enlargen my Heart, read spiritual books, sing devotional songs and feel a conscious need to be aware of and serve my neighbour, His children, in every day life.

    The wise know though, that he/she who loves the Infinite, has already been chosen by the Infinite.  Much Love, Kris.

    Some ideas: Do not assume that you are unworthy. Attend mass, but not as a punishment, but as an offering. Offer to God your troubles. What is a burden for you is no burden for Him. Understand that although you may have turned away at some point, God will never turn his back on you. Have a great day.
