Leviticus 24:2 “Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning continually…”
“Continually” is very important in our walk with God. It’s unthinkable that Jesus would be double-minded or only occasionally holy. What hope would we have if Jesus “usually” saved, but not always, He usually forgave, but not always, He usually loved, but not always?
The more I think about this the more I appreciate why God’s Word, front-to-back, is full of “continually”. It’s our daily walk that is most pleasing to the Lord. Great acts of sacrifice, love, and service are wonderful but, just as in a marriage, it’s our “continually” that builds our relationship and enables us to truly show our love.
