Hello Y’all. Sorry didnt get a chance to post yesterdays chapter blog. Here it is
We are studying Leviticus 17
Be blessed 🙂
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given you the blood to sprinkle upon the altar as an atonement for your souls; it is the blood that makes atonement because it is the life”. ( Lev 17: 11 TLB)
“for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood sustains its life. Therefore I said to the children of Israel, ‘You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off.’” (Lev 17:14 NKJV)
Blood is the source of life. Without blood we would die for its what sustains life.
Blood is the atonement for sin. Hebrews 9: 22 says “In fact we can say that under the old agreement almost everything was cleansed by sprinkling it with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins”.(TLB)
This is the reason why Jesus had to shed His blood for us on the cross. It was the only way we could be forgiven and reconciled back to the Father.
“Christ sacrificed his life’s blood to set us free, which means our sins are now forgiven. Christ did this because of God’s gift of undeserved grace to us. God has great wisdom and understanding” (Ephesians 1:7-8 CEVUS06)
“But Christ was sinless, and he offered himself as an eternal and spiritual sacrifice to God. This is why his blood is much more powerful and makes our consciences clear. Now we can serve the living God and no longer do things that lead to death. Christ died to rescue those who had sinned and broken the old agreement. Now he brings his chosen ones a new agreement with its guarantee of God’s eternal blessings!”(Hebrews 9:14-15 CEVUS06)
“God paid a ransom to save you from the impossible road to heaven which your fathers tried to take, and the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver as you very well know. But he paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God”. (1 Peter 1: 18 -19 TLB)
Thank God for the blood of Jesus.
