Today’s Bible reading Leviticus 15-17
Leviticus 16:34 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.
God gave the children of Israel a way to atone for their sins! From the very first He has been there, uninvited, giving the opportunity for salvation.
Do you remember that Adam and Eve sinned. They hid themselves. He found them. They were trying to cover their own sins. He sacrificed an animal and covered their nakedness.
Here He takes the time to explain to them a method whereby He will allow the consequences of their sin to be placed on an animal and them to have their sins atoned. They sinned. They did not deserve forgiveness or salvation but God provided.
Jesus came as the Lamb of God. He took the sins of the world upon Him. He died in our place. We do not deserve it but there God is again making a way of atonement, salvation for us!
Will you believe? Will you accept that God loves you so much that He sent Jesus to pay your sin debt?
