Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"The sin offering"
Text: Leviticus 4:2-3
"Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a person sins unintentionally against any of the commandments of the LORD in anything which ought not to be done, and does any of them,
if the anointed priest sins, bringing guilt on the people, then let him offer to the LORD for his sin which he has sinned a young bull without blemish as a sin offering."
"The sin offering," is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The sin offering was for unintentional sins that we commit; that 'surprising' sin that catches us off-guard doing something we never thought we would do! That's what unintentional sin is. The result of our old evil nature catching us in a moment of weakness. This unintentional sin was what Paul was wrestling with in Romans 7:24-25.
This sin offering was given by the priest, the congregation, the ruler, and the individual; because all of them were guilty of this unintentional sin, and needed to confess and repent of this sin.
Our Commander Jesus Christ fulfilled all these offerings and so by "one offering of Himself He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.(Heb.10:14). This offering was made once and for all time by Jesus - but it requires you and I to confess and repent of our sin. Like the people "laid their hand" on the animal confessing and repenting of their sin, so you and I lay the burden of our sin by faith upon the finished work of Jesus on the cross. He paid a sin-debt that He did owe - I owed a sin-debt that I could not pay....."
Oh Hallelujah! Our Commander and King is our High Priest and He made His soul an offering for our sin! (Isa.53:10). This is why the Warrior lives a lifestyle of repentance. When Holy Spirit convicts us of sin we confess our guilt and repent immediately of our sin. Our Lifestyle of Repentance grows our Love for God and our hatred of sin! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
