Good evening y’all. Today we are studying chapter 5 of Leviticus
All the chapters we’ve read this week point back to Jesus being our sacrificial lamb.
What more can I say? I’m just so glad Jesus paid it all. His blood has redeemed and freed us from the curse of sin and death
I will leave us with some verses from Hebrews 7 and 13.
“18 Yes, the old system of priesthood based on family lines was canceled because it didn’t work. It was weak and useless for saving people. 19 It never made anyone really right with God. But now we have a far better hope, for Christ makes us acceptable to God, and now we may draw near to him.
24 But Jesus lives forever and continues to be a Priest so that no one else is needed. 25 He is able to save completely all who come to God through him. Since he will live forever, he will always be there to remind God that he has paid for their sins with his blood.
26 He is, therefore, exactly the kind of High Priest we need; for he is holy and blameless, unstained by sin, undefiled by sinners, and to him has been given the place of honor in heaven. 27 He never needs the daily blood of animal sacrifices, as other priests did, to cover over first their own sins and then the sins of the people; for he finished all sacrifices, once and for all, when he sacrificed himself on the cross. 28 Under the old system, even the high priests were weak and sinful men who could not keep from doing wrong, but later God appointed by his oath his Son who is perfect forever”. (Hebrews 7: 18-19, 24 -28 TLB)
“11 Under the system of Jewish laws, the high priest brought the blood of the slain animals into the sanctuary as a sacrifice for sin, and then the bodies of the animals were burned outside the city. 12 That is why Jesus suffered and died outside the city, where his blood washed our sins away.
13 So let us go out to him beyond the city walls (that is, outside the interests of this world, being willing to be despised) to suffer with him there, bearing his shame. 14 For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our everlasting home in heaven.
15 With Jesus’ help we will continually offer our sacrifice of praise to God by telling others of the glory of his name.16 Don’t forget to do good and to share what you have with those in need, for such sacrifices are very pleasing to him”. (Hebrews 13: 11-16 TLB)
As we go about the rest of the day and weekend, lets incorporate the words from verse Hebrews 13:16 into our lives.
Thanks for joining.
Have a blessed weekend 🙂
